Technicolor has appointed Kenneth Bridges as senior vice president of intellectual property enforcement and litigation in its technology segment, which includes intellectual property and licensing, and the company's research and innovation laboratories.

Following graduation from the University of Chicago law school, Kenneth Bridges served as outside patent litigation counsel for 15 years, working first at Kirkland & Ellis before founding his own firm. During his career, he has acquired experience in the management of extensive, complex, multinational litigation. Kenneth has worked across a diverse array of technologies, most recently including wireless communications and mobile devices, among companies such as Apple, Ericsson, HTC, Motorola, Nokia, Samsung and others.

"I am delighted to have another opportunity to work with Ken, who served me as outside counsel in my prior position at Apple," said Boris Teksler, senior executive vice president of the technology business group at Technicolor. "He is a skilled patent litigator with a unique combination of skills, including protecting intellectual assets and driving focused dispute resolution to commercial success. Ken's addition to our team will further our ability to appropriately enforce Technicolor's intellectual property to the benefit of the company and its existing licensees."
