Adams and Reese appoints Michael Bednarek


Adams and Reese LLP has expanded its intellectual property team with the hire of Michael Bednarek as partner and member of its IP practice.

Bednarek, who will be based in the company’s Washington DC office, has experience in cross-border patent, industrial design, cyber security and trade secret issues.

Previously, he has worked with companies in the US, Asia and Europe covering a range of industries such as information technology, application-specific integrated circuits, circuits, optoelectronics, consumer goods and electronics, medical devices, toys and gaming, manufacturing, automotive and financial services.

Bednarek’s appointment will enhance the firm’s capabilities before federal agencies, such as the US International Trade Commission, US Customs and Border Protection and the US Patent and Trademark Office.

Prior to joining, Bednarek served as partner at various other firms, including Shearman & Sterling, Axinn and Locke Lord LLP.

Mitch Boult, intellectual property attorney, who leads Adams and Reese's strategic growth initiative, commented: “Bringing Bednarek into our DC office continues the upward trajectory of our global IP team. His formidable skills and contacts are a powerful value-add for our multinational clients.”
