Haynes and Boone, LLP has welcomed litigation attorney Jamie McDole as a new partner, who will focus on intellectual property litigation including Section 337 investigations before the International Trade Commission and appeals to the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
“Jamie’s background handling International Trade Commission proceedings will enhance the firm’s patent litigation practice and expand our already strong team of litigators with significant ITC trial experience,” said David Harper, co-section leader for litigation. “His experience wonderfully complements our existing team of Dallas-based IP practitioners, and he will help us provide even better service to our clients from coast to coast.”
As part of a strategic plan to invigorate the Intellectual Property Practice Group, McDole joins five other new IP litigation arrivals, Philip G. Hampton II, John Hintz, Kimberly Chen Nobles, Bradley J. Olson and Richard D. Rochford.
McDole’s experience includes preparing for and participating in several patent jury and bench trials as well as ITC hearings in areas of pharmaceuticals, wireless communications, semiconductors, oil and gas, and payment processing, performing discovery in preparation for trials, defending and taking depositions, and negotiating and drafting settlement and license agreements to intellectual property rights.
Haynes and Boone’s IP litigation practice is particularly strong because of the group’s close collaboration with the firm’s other IP practitioners in patent prosecution, patent re-examination, technology transactions, and trademark prosecution, clearance and enforcement.
He joins Haynes and Boone from the Chicago office of Kirkland & Ellis LLP. McDole received his bachelor of science in chemical engineering from the University of Iowa and juris doctorate from the Chicago-Kent College of Law in Chicago.
