Partners John F. Ward and Michael J. Zinna are featured in The American Lawyer article, “Kelley Drye Joins IP Boutique Bolt-On Frenzy.” Joining Kelley Drye’s intellectual property practice group, Mr. Ward and Mr. Zinna concentrate their practices on complex patent litigation, post-grant review proceedings before the U.S. Patent Trial & Appeal Board (PTAB), trademark litigation, IP licensing, and the management of domestic and international IP portfolios.
Mr. Zinna said they reached out to legal recruiting firm Major, Lindsey & Africa in an effort to grow the number of their attorneys when, “the recruiters turned the tables on us,” said Mr. Ward. The MLA recruiters suggested that Mr. Ward and Mr. Zinna meet with Kelley Drye as they were looking to increase its IP practice.
Senior associate David G. Lindenbaum also joined Kelley Drye from Ward & Zinna.
