Gibson Dunn hires Goodwin litigator in New York

Gibson Dunn & Crutcher has hired Goodwin Proctor IP litigation partner Benjamin Hershkowitz for its New York office.

Hershkowitz joins the firm as a partner and will help ramp up their patent infringement and technology litigation capabilities.

Gibson Dunn managing partner Ken Doran said: “The growth of our national IP practice has been one of our strategic priorities for the past couple of years. Ben has a wealth of experience and technical expertise, which will help us to continue to grow our IP practice.”

Gibson Dunn has been on a recruitment drive this year, hiring Herbert Smith arbitration head Laurence Shore for its New York office in February (The Lawyer, 7th February).
