Fish's John Pegram Quoted in WIPR's "Trump removes US from TPP deal"

John Pegram (Senior Principal) was quoted in WIPR article, “Trump removes US from TPP deal" on January 24, 2017.

John Pegram, senior principal at Fish & Richardson, said that withdrawal from the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) may follow Trump's decision to abandon the TPP.

He added that increased US-UK trade seems less likely, which would be "a blow" to UK Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit plans.

"US law requires trade agreements to include IP provisions, and both the TTP and TTIP included such provisions. If these negotiations are not going to proceed, there may be an increased focus on IP law harmonisation in other forums, such as the World Intellectual Property Organization," said Pegram.
