Meet the Managing IP team: Michael Loney

A few words about our Americas editor Michael Loney

Michael Loney

Michael is responsible for all of Managing IP’s Americas content, including writing, commissioning and editing articles. He writes about all aspects of intellectual property, with a particular focus on US litigation and developments at the Patent Trial and Appeal Board.

He has been writing about intellectual property since late 2013, and finds it a welcome relief after 11 years of covering the reinsurance industry.

Michael studied economics and politics at the University of Manchester. After a year out travelling around India and south-east Asia failed to inspire any more-enlightened ideas, he started his career in journalism in London in 2002 as a graduate trainee at Euromoney Institutional Investor. He moved to New York in 2005 and lives in the east village.
