Duane Morris opens Austin office

Duane Morris has expanded its US presence with the opening of a new office in Austin, Texas.

As part of the expansion, intellectual property partner Bert Greene has been hired.

Greene focuses on patent litigation in a variety of areas, including technology, ecommerce, computer graphics and DNA analysis. He also has experience working with copyright, trademarks and trade secrets.

The firm says both Greene’s appointment and the new office further aligns Duane Morris’s domestic footprint with the high technology and energy sectors in Texas.

Thomas Sankey, managing partner of Duane Morris’s Houston office, said: “We are pleased to launch our new presence in one of the country’s fastest moving high-tech capitals.”

“Our attorneys will now be able to work from an office close to our clients, supported and augmented by lawyers throughout the firm.”

Duane Morris now has 21 offices located in the US and 29 in total.
