Orrick steps up New York hiring spree

Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe has swooped again in New York, scooping Mayer Brown Rowe & Maw IP litigator Paul Gupta.

Gupta becomes the ninth lateral partner for Orrick’s New York office in the last three months. Last month the firm hired structured finance partners James Croke and Peter Manbeck from Cadwalader Wickersham & Taft’s New York office.

Gupta specialises in patent litigation and patent portfolio management as well as advising companies on cyber security matters.

Gary Weiss, IP head at Orrick said: “Paul has the potential to bring our New York IP practice to the next level.”
