Alston & Bird hires experienced patent litigator
Alston & Bird has recruited intellectual property expert Paul Tanck.

Tanck, who was previously chair of Chadbourne & Parke’s IP group, has joined Alston & Bird’s New York Office as partner.

His practice focuses mainly on patent litigation across a broad range of technologies, including industrial automation, intelligent control system software and IT.

Keith Broyles, co-leader of Alston & Bird’s IP team said: “We are fortunate to add an attorney of Paul Tanck’s calibre and leadership.”

“Tanck’s incredible track record handling commercially critical and legally complex patent litigations for industry leaders, combined with the big-picture view he brings to IP strategy will prove compelling to many of our clients.”

Jamie Hutchinson, partner in charge of the firm’s New York office, added: “Tanck’s arrival is the latest example of how Alston & Bird invests in top talent in high-profile markets where we see a significant benefit to our clients.”

“In the past six months alone, we have added six new partners in New York in bankruptcy and financial restructuring, litigation, investment management, and now IP.”
