IP Ones to Watch 2022: MIP recognises Stephanie Glyde at Rio Tinto
Stephanie Glyde is an IP counsel at Rio Tinto in Australia
The move from private practice to in-house doesn’t come as naturally to all intellectual property attorneys as it did to Stephanie Glyde, IP counsel at Rio Tinto in Perth.
Glyde joined the Melbourne-based mining company in August 2021, having spent nine years at Australian IP firm Griffith Hack.
She has since demonstrated an ability to adapt quickly to the very different demands of working in-house.
As her nominator says, many in-house counsel behave as private practice attorneys who happen to be employed by corporations rather than firms.
“Stephanie does not have this problem.
“I am confident that she will be a top rate in-house attorney capable of tangibly helping any business she works for to achieve commercial goals, business targets, and corporate strategy,” her nominator says.
In particular, Glyde’s strategic perspective and commercial focus have allowed her to hit the ground running in-house, earning her a place on this list.
