IP Today, Oct. 6, 2010 — Bingham has expanded its Boston office and Corporate Area with the addition of veteran intellectual property lawyer Steven Frank. Formerly with Goodwin Procter, Frank joins as a partner in firm’s Corporate, Mergers and Acquisitions, and Securities Practice Group. He will continue his leading intellectual property practice for technology companies, which includes licensing and collaboration, technology transfer, and patent strategy and prosecution. Frank also will provide experience in transactional IP due diligence and will be a key addition to the firm’s growing middle-market technology M&A practice. The author of Intellectual Property for Managers and Investors, Frank brings nearly 25 years of experience in intellectual property law.
Prior to joining Goodwin, Frank was a partner at the former Boston firm Testa Hurwitz & Thibeault, where he practiced with other Bingham partners, including Steven Browne, Mike Conza, Laurie Cerveny, Jordan Hershman and Jason Frank. “We’re extremely excited to be practicing with Steve again,” said Browne. Bingham’s national platform and continued investment in growing its technology-based practices played a key role in Frank joining the firm. “Bingham’s aggressive growth in the technology M&A market is compelling and ideal for growing my practice,” said Frank. “Bingham has tremendous transactional capabilities in the technology space, and Bingham’s investment in technology company representation and related intellectual property work is exciting not only to me as a practitioner but also for clients.” News of Frank’s move to Bingham was also reported by the National Law Journal, Law360 and Boston.com.
