Washington DC firm Arnold & Porter has ramped up its patent litigation practice by hiring four partners from intellectual property (IP) specialists Pennie & Edmonds
The move of the partners - Stan Lawrence, Marcia Sundeen, Todd Wagner and Paul Zegger - reduces the number of partners at Pennie & Edmonds' Washington DC office to two. Its main practice is in New York. The four partners will join Arnold & Porter's 100-person IP and technology group in September. They will bolster the firm's biotechnology and pharmaceutical capabilities, adding strength to its existing related areas of drug regulation, drug reimbursement and patent-related antitrust work. Sundeen has advocated a lot before the International Trade Commission, where an increasing number of disputes are taking place. Lawrence has represented the US's largest privately held pharmaceutical company Purdue Pharma, as well as Chevron, Litton Industries and Hoffmann-LaRoche. Zegger has litigated before several federal district courts and the Court of Appeal for the Federal Court. All four partners have got degrees in chemistry.
