Winston & Strawn Adds Two Dickstein Shapiro Intellectual-Property Lawyers

Winston & Strawn LLP, a Chicago- based law firm with more than 900 attorneys, added intellectual- property lawyers Alfred Fabricant and Lawrence Drucker from Dickstein Shapiro LLP.

The pair will work in the IP practice group at the firm’s New York office, Winston & Strawn said today in a statement. Fabricant will be the group’s leader.

The new partners have represented clients based in the U.S., Europe and Asia. Both litigate in patent, trademark and copyright matters, the firm said. Their experience includes electronics, robotics and computer software cases.

“Fred and Larry bring enormous talent and energy to our IP litigation practice,” Michael Elkin, managing partner of the New York office, said in the statement. “Their nuanced understanding of advanced technologies, plus their track record of success in the courtroom, are tremendous assets.”

The firm has now added 19 experienced attorneys to its IP practice since March, when it absorbed 15 litigators from the defunct Howrey LLP’s Houston office. It subsequently brought David P. Enzminger and David P. Dalke from O’Melveny & Myers LLP.
