Volvo Cars Chief IP Officer Ray Millien has returned from frostbitten Sweden to lead Harness Dickey as the intellectual property boutique’s latest CEO.

Millien, who has served at Volvo since 2018 and was previously IP counsel for General Electric, took the reins at the 100-attorney firm this week and is now based in Detroit, the boutique announced Tuesday. The firm—one of the largest IP boutiques in the U.S.—is based just outside of Detroit, in Troy, Michigan, and has other offices in Dallas, Washington, D.C., and St. Louis.
