Bronze - Individuals: litigation

Greenberg Traurig’s commerciality, energy, agility and service mindedness are put on full display by the New York IP team. Much credit for this is owed to Scott Bornstein, who recently took on the role of co-managing shareholder of the local office, which he fulfils while also co-leading the global IP and technology and patent litigation groups and serving on the executive committee. A wonderfully dynamic leader for the firm, he also puts in serious work as a litigator and trial lawyer: he recently represented Teva in a Paragraph IV challenge; and Kretek International, Dryft Sciences and others in an ITC and multi-district court litigation against Swedish Match and others involving tobacco-less nicotine pouch products. For Teva, he has linked up with smart life sciences and high-technology litigation strategist Richard Pettus and Jonathan Ball, an organic chemistry PhD who contributes vitally to the firm’s prosecution, portfolio management, licensing, post-grant and litigation practices. Holding it down in conflicts over computer, financial, medical device and communications technologies, meanwhile, is Joshua Raskin, who receives outstanding reviews: “From a customer service standpoint, Josh is incredible; he is also the sort of lawyer who you want to present to boards on litigation strategy. An excellent decision maker and writer, he consistently outworks and outthinks counterparties to lead his clients to sweeping victories.” He was recently hired by JPMorgan to defend against an inventor’s allegations of patent infringement and swiftly had the case dismissed. For this, he partnered with Rose Cordero Prey who garners equally enthusiastic praise: “Rose is organised, quick, responsive, diligent and a logical thinker who is brilliant at juggling all aspects of a litigation, while never losing sight of the big picture. She has such a robust patent skillset that she can quickly adapt to new cases, technologies and clients.” Raskin also forms a highly productive connection with Allan Kassenoff, with whom she has been defending Deezer in a patent infringement suit in which the court found all asserted patent claims invalid under Section 101. Kassenoff has tried multiple cases to verdict and maintains a vibrant practice spanning diverse industry sectors.
