We’re elated to announce that Arlene Hornilla and Jay Worthington have joined our board of strategic advisors.
Arlene’s broad and deep expertise in IP litigation and other corporate disputes makes her an ideal advisor for Cloud Court. She is a technology-focused attorney passionate about the intersection of tech, law, and IP. Today, Arlene serves as VP Deputy General Counsel and Chief Intellectual Property Counsel at Entegris, Inc. She has been instrumental in creating significant value out of IP, including winning a lawsuit that achieved the largest IP damages judgement ever awarded by Taiwan’s IP Court in a semiconductor-related patent litigation.
Very recently, Arlene has been chosen by the well-respected ChIPs Network as one of just 17 executive women for its inaugural General Counsel Boot Camp to be led and supported by some of the most influential and distinguished women in legal.
Arlene has been a trusted legal advisor and mission-focused business partner who brings pragmatic legal solutions to multi-national businesses and innovative organizations. Over the past 20 years, she has held senior roles in various industries in consumer/retail (food & beverage, health products) as well as B2B (semiconductor, life sciences, metrology), helping each organization grow and harvest innovation. Arlene holds a BS in Chemical Engineering from the University of Illinois Chicago and a JD from the University of Illinois Chicago School of Law.
Jay’s extraordinary record of success in high-stakes litigation exemplifies his proficiency in strategic legal practice as well as the development and application of technology tools. For nearly two decades, Jay was a litigator at Paul Hastings in New York City, representing clients in a wide range of high-profile court cases, investigations, and early case assessments.
Jay has successfully managed e-discovery projects and investigations at scales ranging from individual employee lawsuits to multinational, cross-border disputes involving years of alleged institutional misconduct and tens of millions of documents. He has led and co-led litigation teams in numerous significant matters, including representing various instrumentalities of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico in multi-billion-dollar litigations relating to the Puerto Rico PROMESA bankruptcy cases and representing Venezuela’s national oil company in a case relating to billions of dollars in debt securities.
Over the course of Jay’s career, he has developed expertise in the constantly evolving landscape of data management and analysis and collaborated in the development of numerous bespoke data science and document review tools. Jay holds a BA in Literature from Yale University and a JD from the New York University School of Law.
Cloud Court is very fortunate to gain advisors of such caliber of litigation and IP expertise and technology depth. Please join us in welcoming Arlene and Jay to our strategic advisory team.
