Veteran Intellectual Property Team Joins Brown Rudnick

Attorneys practice in pharma, biotech, medical device, and software industries, among others

Boston, Massachusetts (Vocus) -- Brown Rudnick, an international law firm, today announced that a veteran Intellectual Property ("IP") team from Cooley Godward Kronish LLP has joined the Firm's Boston office. With over 35 years of combined experience, the team includes Partners Thomas C. Meyers and Robert J. Tosti.

Mr. Meyers has over 18 years of experience creating and implementing patent strategies for biotechnology, medical device, and pharmaceutical companies. He routinely advises life science companies, startups, venture capital firms, investment banks and academic institutions; and has negotiated and drafted numerous multimillion dollar collaborations. Previously, Mr. Meyers was a partner at Testa, Hurwitz & Thibeault, LLP and later was Vice President and General Counsel at Helicos BioSciences Corporation.

Mr. Tosti is experienced in all areas of IP law including patent and trademark counseling, opinions, and prosecution, IP portfolio development, licensing, litigation, and the assessment and enforcement of IP rights. He is a registered patent attorney with a background in electrical engineering and represents clients across a variety of technologies including software, business methods, electronics, and medical devices.

According to Brown Rudnick CEO Joseph F. Ryan, "Tom and Rob bring significant breadth and depth of IP experience, particularly in the pharma, biotech, medical device and software sectors. Their addition strengthens our IP Group's platform in these important markets and demonstrates the Firm's commitment to advising global clients on how to best manage and safeguard their intellectual property rights."

This notice follows the recent announcement that a highly respected and successful litigation team joined the Firm's London office on July 6, 2009. The group is led by partner Neil Micklethwaite who is joined by a senior associate and two trainees scheduled to qualify later this year. Neil is one of the former principals of Gherson, a litigation boutique in the U.K. He has been practicing law for 25 years, and was previously head of litigation in London for both Bingham McCutchen and DLA Piper.

In addition, Brown Rudnick recently added Corporate Partner, Lena Hodge, and Tax Partner, Tracy Fisher, to the Firm's London office.
