McGuireWoods snags ITC expert


McGuireWoods has added Steven Adkins to its intellectual property and patent litigation department.

Adkins has joined the firm’s Washington DC office as partner. He focuses on IP infringement cases before the US International Trade Commission (ITC).

He has represented clients in 55 ITC investigations relating to a wide range of technologies and areas, including trademarks, patents and trade secrets.

Brian Riopelle, chair of the McGuireWoods IP and patent litigation department, said: “Steve Adkins significantly expands our capabilities in high-stakes investigations by the ITC, which has become a popular venue for disputes involving imported products.”
