by

This year’s Galloway Symposium is being held under Chatham House Rules, so blog posts will only give general overviews of the content.

The fourth panel was titled Views of Legal Practitioners. It was moderated by Franceska Schroeder, Principal, Fish & Richardson P.C. Panelists included:

• Courtney Graham, Associate General Counsel, Commercial & Intellectual
Property, NASA HQ
• Laura Montgomery, Manager, Space Law Branch, Office of the Chief Counsel,
Federal Aviation Administration
• Lisa Savitt, Counsel, Crowell & Moring, LLP

This panel focused on the role of practitioners in enabling clients to develop and deploy disruptive technologies. They emphasized the need to use creative legal tools to navigate a regulatory regime that is often static in relation to the technologies involved. This panel addressed ITAR, intellectual property regimes, and the development of new rules to address new technologies.
