Rimon chooses two tech experts


Rimon has added two intellectual property partners to its Washington DC and New York offices.

Marc Kaufman and Letao Qin have joined the firm as partner.

Kaufman previously worked at Reed Smith where he was partner and co-leader for the financial technology team.

His practice focuses mainly on patent strategy in the fintech space.

Michael Moradzadeh, CEO of Rimon, said: “Marc Kaufman is exactly the type of attorney we look to bring on board.”

“He has developed a leading position as one of the top fintech attorneys in the country, and his knowledge of such next generation technologies like blockchain has led some of the key fintech players to search him out.”

Qin is experienced in all aspects of IP prosecution, procurement and counselling, and previously worked at nuclear energy company Industrial Heat, where she was in-house counsel.

She has experience as an IP attorney at two boutique firms, focusing mainly on electrical and telecommunication technology.

Moradzadeh said: “Letao Qin’s deep technical skills combined with her efficient approach to client service make her a perfect match for Rimon.”

“We are confident she will help us grow our IP practice in the US as well as globally.”
