National Bar Association Names John Gibson a Diversity in Tech & IP Award Winner

Orange County – August 12, 2019: The National Bar Association has named John S. Gibson one of its 2019 Diversity in Tech & IP award winners. The association’s IP Section created the awards to recognize diverse lawyers and in-house legal departments that have demonstrated a commitment to advancing the hiring, retention, and promotion of diverse attorneys in the technology industry. The other winners include HP Inc., Toyota, Joe Lee of Microsoft, and Laurie Charrington of Intel Corporation.

Over the past three decades, Gibson has made his mark in the legal industry as one of the leading commercial, technology, and antitrust litigators in the nation, a leader at the firm, and a champion of diversity, inclusion, and social justice. He has received multiple accolades for his trial wins and his oral and writing advocacy for clients. As a testament to his leadership, he was recently named “Attorney of the Year” by the Thurgood Marshall Bar Association and one of Savoy Magazine’s “Most Influential Black Lawyers.” In addition, Gibson has been an active leader in the firm’s award-winning sponsorship program—a program created to propel the careers of the firm's female and diverse lawyers through individual relationships and training programs.

Gibson is a member of Crowell & Moring’s Management Board, and serves as co-chair of the firm’s Diversity Council. He is a partner in the Litigation Group and chairs the firm’s 3D Printing Digital Transformation Working Group as well as the Antitrust and Technology Working Group.

The winners were honored at an awards ceremony in July in New York.
