NEW YORK, Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Intellectual property attorney Jason Lief has joined Gersten Savage LLP as a partner, the firm announced.

His extensive trial and litigation experience includes trying patent infringement, validity and enforceability issues before United States federal judges and juries; arguing before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit; and managing and conducting all aspects of discovery, including foreign court appearances pursuant to the Hague Convention.

He has represented major pharmaceutical companies and has handled matters spanning organic chemistry, biotechnology, antibodies, combinatorial chemistry, RNAi technology, antibiotics, anti-depressants, anti-retroviral and anti-ulcer medicines, sustained-release medicines, drug-stabilization, polymers, advanced battery systems, detergents and deodorant technologies.

He brings extensive experience to the firm, particularly in the area of pharmaceutical patents and IP," said Jay Kaplowitz, Gersten Savage managing partner. "Together with IP practice co-chair Jim Fornari, we can provide clients with expertise in a wide array of intellectual property matters."

Prior to joining Gersten Savage, Lief was a partner with McDermott, Will & Emery. Previously, he was a partner with Morgan Lewis & Bockius. He began his career as an associate and then a partner at Hopgood, Calimafde, Kalil & Judlowe, which later merged with Morgan Lewis.

Lief earned his J.D. at Cardozo Law School, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude, ranked in the top five percent of his class, and served as notes editor for the law review. He holds a B.A. in chemistry Magna Cum Laude from Brooklyn College, where he was elected Phi Beta Kappa.

Lief is admitted to practice in the state of New York, the U.S. District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and the United States Supreme Court. He is a frequent speaker on patent law developments.
