"Richard Baker is one of the most bright and innovative Director's of Intellectual Property at Schneider Automation, a subsidiary of Schneider Electric SA, that I ever had the pleasure to work in tandem on a host of comples IP issuses. Richard brings a new meaning to the word intellectual property professional. Richard's thorough knowledge of IP related issues means that he is creative in solving problems as well as a leader with the ability to motivate people to get the job done and to achieve whatever goals are set by his executive management in a company. Richard deserves the highest recommendation for any position within a corporate IP department but especially as an officer and director of IP for that corporation. -Mike Femal, Principal, Much Shelist"
