Yulia Borisova

Yulia Borisova holds a law degree with honors and a PhD from the Moscow Lomonosov State University (Russia). She has practiced law for more than 10 years working for major international law firms (focusing on capital markets transactions and corporate matters) and banks (supporting with cash, trade and custody products). During her LL.M. studies at Bocconi University, Yulia became interested in intellectual property law, which is a fundamental pillar of the challenging internet technology era. Issues relating to protection of software by patents and copyright seem to be of particular importance in many sectors. The 4iP Council Research Award gave motivation and opportunity to conduct a more detailed research in this sphere.
