Cooley hires team of IP leaders from Mintz Levin
Cooley has scored with the hire of a team of six leading IP attorneys from Mintz Levin. The group is led by Ivor R. Elrifi, who formerly chaired Mintz Levin’s IP practice, and his fellow partner Heidi Erlacher. The team joins the Boston and New York offices.
Jim Brogan, chair of Cooley’s intellectual property practice said: “Recently, we have seen unprecedented growth in the life sciences industry, with countless companies receiving regulatory approval and accessing the public capital markets for the first time. This group’s deep experience and extensive relationships across the country and internationally will be invaluable as Cooley continues to lead at the forefront of complex IP representations.”
He added, “The addition of Ivor, Heidi, and their team establishes Cooley as one of the pre-eminent, fully integrated IP firms, with one of the largest national life sciences patent practices in the country.”
