BakerHostetler hires patent litigation pro


BakerHostetler has hired Pierre Yanney as partner in its New York office and patent litigation team.

Yanney previously worked at Stroock & Stroock & Lavan where he was partner. His practice focuses mainly on patent litigation and prosecution in high-tech industries, including electronics, telecommunications and medical devices.

He has practiced across the US Federal and District Courts, as well as before the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and the US Patent and Trademark Office.

Mark Tidman, chair of BakerHostetler’s IP group, commented: “We pride ourselves on attracting team members with a combination of intellectual strength, legal prowess and technical talent—and Pierre Yanney epitomises that.”

He said: “He has an appreciation for technology that recalls his roots as an engineer, and his 25 years in patent litigation and prosecution enable him to distill complex details in the courtroom. His track record speaks for itself.”

Yanney explained: “Protecting a company’s IP portfolio requires a deep bench of attorneys who have the technological insight to create a customised approach.”

He added: “BakerHostetler’s IP practice is the robust platform my growing clients need, and I’m excited they’ll be able to tap into these resources.”

George Stamboulidis, managing partner of the firm’s New York office, said: “Pierre Yanney’s experience with portfolio expansion and enforcement makes him another key player on an already all-star team.”

He added: “Our clients will benefit from his deep technical training, along with his ability to both litigate and prosecute matters related to their intellectual property.”
