King & Spalding drives patent group forward with new hire

King & Spalding’s fledgling New York patent litigation group has welcomed a partner from Kenyon & Kenyon.

Robert Perry, who was also a member of Kenyon & Kenyon’s management committee group, will bring the number of fee-earners in King & Spalding’s New York-based group to 11, including four partners.

King & Spalding set up the practice area in May, bumping up the firm-wide lawyers and patent agents based throughout Atlanta and New York to 60 experts.
