Philadelphia’s Am Law 100 firm Cozen O'Connor and Miami’s Feldman Gale P.A., specializing in intellectual property (IP), recently revealed that 15 of the latter’s lawyers will join Cozen O’Connor’s IP department to mutually benefit both firms.
"The Feldman Gale firm is nationally recognized for their high stakes intellectual property litigation, trademark prosecution and patent prosecution," Michael Heller, Cozen O'Connor’s president and CEO, said. "Their practice will be a terrific addition to Cozen O'Connor and will strengthen our already nationally prominent intellectual property practice in strategic, geographic markets."
The selected group includes both founders, James Gale and Jeffrey Feldman; plus partners Samuel Lewis, Rafael Perez-Pineiro, Susan Latham, Lawrence S. Gordon, Ashley Kessler and Thomas Dye; of counsel Victor Castellucci, and associates Javier Sobrado, Dr. Gene Lang, A. Robert Weaver, David Stahl, Matthew Horowitz and Jonathan Gale.
The attorneys will be located mainly in the O’Connor firm’s Miami and San Francisco offices.
"Federal Courts in Florida are recognized for their efficient case management and scheduling, which has attracted parties involved in patent disputes seeking a speedy resolution," Cozen O'Connor’s Miami office head Martin Schrier said, calling the move advantageous.
Feldman Gale is an AV Preeminent rated full-service intellectual property boutique. Its founders and many of its staff are board certified by the Florida Bar as IP law specialists, the state’s top designation in the specialty; its lawyers are nationally recognized for their expertise in litigation, licensing, patents, trademark and copyright law spanning many industry sectors.
“[We] are looking forward to applying our rich and respected backgrounds when we serve Cozen O'Connor's clients," James Gale said.
