Quinn Emanuel hires patent pro


Quinn Emanuel has hired Steven Cherny to join its New York office as partner.

Cherny is a patent litigation lawyer and has practiced in Federal Courts and the US International Trade Commission.

His practice focuses mainly on patent cases in telecommunications, electronics and pharmaceuticals.

John Quinn, managing partner at Quinn Emanuel, said: “The firm’s IP litigation practice is booming.”

“Adding a widely acknowledged superstar in that space is a unique opportunity. We expect Steve Cherny will spearhead the firm’s growth in the medical device and telecom areas in particular.”
