Brownstein Hyatt enlarges Denver IP team
Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck has hired patent attorney S. Craig Hemenway to its intellectual property group, continuing recent moves to enlarge the practice group.
Hemenway joins the partnership from Dorsey & Whitney, where he has led the the Denver patent group since 2011. Before Dorsey & Whitney he was working as a control systems engineer for San Francisco-based construction and engineering giant Bechtel Corp.
Hemenway will be the 13th new addition to the firm’s IP team this summer, 12 of whom came from Minneapolis-based Dorsey. This hire brings the total headcount for Brownstein's IP team to 25 people.
"We are thrilled to have someone of Craig’s caliber join our firm," said Adam Agron, Brownstein’s co-managing partner. "The technology sector has been one of the most significant drivers of growth in the U.S. economy and, in response to this demand, we have been pursuing an expansion of our intellectual property capabilities."
