Andrew Eisenberg and Mircea Tipescu have joined the firm’s Austin and Chicago offices, bringing the total number of attorneys in its IP group to 113.
Eisenberg is experienced in a wide range of IP matters, including trademarks, patents and licensing.
Stephen Gigot, chair of Michael Best’s IP practice, said: “We’re thrilled that Andrew Eisenberg is joining our practice here in Austin.”
“His strategic thinking and depth of experience working in the startup ecosystem in Austin will enhance the scope of our intellectual property and corporate team, and further credential our firm in a region that is a hotbed for entrepreneurial activity.”
Tipescu’s practice focuses more on patent litigation, prosecution, counselling and licensing. He has over 15 years of experience in patent litigation.
Gigot said: “Mircea Tipescu brings a great analytical mentality to our practice group.”
“His background counseling clients in patent prosecution and clearance matters and his work in inter partes review, and litigation matters in both the federal district courts and the International Trade Commission will be a huge benefit to our clients.”
