Julie Samuels joins Engine from EFF

Technology policy advocate group Engine has hired Julie Samuels as executive director and president


Samuels has served as a board member at Engine since it was founded in 2011.

She joins Engine from Electronic Frontier Foundation, where she was a senior staff attorney and Mark Cuban Chair to Eliminate Stupid Patents. She also serves on the advisory board of the Defensive Patent License. Before joining EFF, she litigated IP and entertainment cases in Chicago and Nashville at Loeb & Loeb, and Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal.

Samuels’s first initiative at Engine is to launch a senior fellows program with the appointment of Peter Pappas, former USPTO chief of staff, to cover intellectual property. In addition to Pappas, additional fellows will be appointed on net neutrality and women in technology.
