US: Gibson Dunn’s recruits from Mayer Brown

 |  January 25, 2017

An intellectual property litigator has joined Gibson Dunn’s New York office as a partner from Mayer Brown, where he served for nearly six years.

Brian Rosenthal has left Mayer Brown, where he spent nearly six years as a partner, to work in the same role in the New York office of Los Angeles-headquartered Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher.

Rosenthal specialises in patent litigation and licensing, and has a particular experience with computer networks, mobile telephone technology, e-commerce software and call centre technology, among others.

His expertise revolves around patent infringement, validity, enforceability, freedom to operate opinions and licensing.

Rosenthal represents companies from the computer software, electronics and medical devices sectors before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board of the US Patent and Trademark Office.

He started his legal career in 2000 at Howrey, a Washington-headquartered antitrust, litigation and intellectual property (IP) firm which closed in 2011.

In a statement, Ken Doran, Gibson Dunn’s chairman and managing partner, called Rosenthal “a talented IP lawyer with extensive trial experience”, who has “a terrific reputation as a strategist, counselor and trial lawyer”.

Josh Krevitt, co-chair of the firm’s IP practice, added that Rosenthal is “a superb IP trial lawyer, with substantial and successful experience”.

Rosenthal cited the firm’s “deep trial lawyer bench” within its IP practice as a reason for joining.

The previous IP addition in Gibson Dunn’s New York office was John Squires, who joined as a partner in August from Seattle-headquartered Perkins Coie. Rosenthal brings the number of the firm’s New York IP partners to 20.
