Nationally recognized intellectual property and business litigation attorney becomes partner at top Atlanta law firm
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) February 24, 2014
Atlanta-based law firm Hill, Kertscher & Wharton, LLP recently announced that attorney John L. North has joined the firm as a partner.
North brings over 27 years of experience to the firms intellectual property and business litigation practices. His prior work includes high-stakes litigation involving patent, copyright and trademark infringement, as well as unfair competition, securities fraud, and professional liability matters. North is leaving his position as a partner in the Atlanta office of Kasowitz Benson Torres & Friedman LLP, prior to which he served as the chair of Sutherland Asbill & Brennan LLPs intellectual property group.
Steve Hill, co-founding partner at Hill, Kertscher & Wharton, LLP, believes that Norths addition will make a very positive and immediate impact on the firms cases, as well as future litigation for which it is retained. John is one of the most effective attorneys in the country when it comes to very large and complex business disputes, said Hill.
Hill also believes that Norths particular penchant for explaining difficult technical concepts sensibly to judges and juries in cases involving highly technical subject matter, such as patent and trade secret cases, makes him an ideal match for the firms growing intellectual property litigation practice. This is a great case of right time, right opportunity for all involved, said Hill. With the addition of North and a shared vision of excellent commitment and results, Hill expects to see continuing growth in the firms intellectual property and business litigation practices.
North believes that his prior positions have prepared him well, and is looking forward to practicing with attorneys he has known and respected for many years. Im looking forward to a smaller firm environment and the flexibility and hands-on approach to cases that accompany it, said North. The complex litigation and IP work at HKW is also a very good fit for my background, and I look forward to the challenges ahead.
In addition to the excitement of a career change, it was also announced this week that North was selected to the list of Georgia Super Lawyers for the 11th consecutive year. He was also named a 2013 IP Star by Managing Intellectual Property magazine and has been selected to the list published by Best Lawyers in America for 6 years.
