Norton Rose Fulbright boosts patent practice


Norton Rose Fulbright has added new partner Jeffrey Lewis to its New York office, bolstering its patent litigation practice.

Lewis, who is a past president of the American Intellectual Property Law Association, represents clients in patent disputes in the life sciences and healthcare industries, as well as in technology and innovation.

He has experience with Hatch-Waxman cases and is experienced in litigating cases before the US District Courts and the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

Lewis previously worked at Fried, Frank, Harris Shriver & Jacobson where he was partner.

Darly Lansdale, US managing partner of Norton Rose Fulbright, said: “Having grown into one of the 25 largest law firm offices in New York, we are becoming an even more attractive destination for world-class lawyers seeking a global platform.”

“Jeffrey Lewis will bolster our IP practice and provide patent litigation capabilities that our clients desire.”

Gina Shishima, US head of intellectual property at the firm, added: “Jeffrey Lewis is an accomplished IP litigator with deep industry knowledge, and his practice greatly complements our existing team.”

“His experience and trial capabilities will benefit our clients in New York and around the world.”

Commenting on the move, Lewis said: “Norton Rose Fulbright offers a tremendous opportunity to work with some of the very best lawyers around the world. The firm’s reach allows me to serve clients with a wide range of complex IP issues globally.”
