We see this as a ‘win-win’ situation as it allows us to significantly expand our intellectual property practice in the technology sector while providing Jack and Maureen with the litigation resources that are the life-blood of our firm.
Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) July 13, 2011
The law firm of Heninger Garrison Davis is pleased to announce that John “Jack” W. Olivo, Jr. and Maureen Abbey have joined the firm. Jack Olivo was a founding partner of Ward and Olivo, an Intellectual Property firm often engaged by other law firms throughout the country for its expertise in the fields of telecommunications and software. Over the span of two decades, the firm enjoyed many successes and became unique and prominent by balancing two fronts: the defense of nationally significant patent cases on a traditional hourly fee basis, and the enforcement of patents for plaintiffs on a contingency fee basis. Ward & Olivo strategically dissolved earlier this year, to separate its defense practice from its plaintiff practice, which precipitated Jack’s move with his plaintiffs’ intellectual property enforcement practice to Heninger Garrison Davis.

Joining Jack in the move to Heninger Garrison Davis is his colleague, Maureen Abbey, a seasoned patent litigator, who, in addition to her vast knowledge of intellectual property law, brings to the firm her expertise in life sciences and pharmaceutical technology.

“It was actually a very easy decision for us,” said Tim Davis, managing partner of Heninger Garrison Davis, of Olivo’s move to the firm. “We have worked in co-counsel relationships with Ward and Olivo on patent cases for several years and are therefore very familiar with their expertise. Jack Olivo’s accomplishments in the area of patent litigation over the last 20 years are evidenced by the trust his many clients place in him and his ability to maximize the value of their ownership interests in large, sophisticated patent portfolios. We see this as a ‘win-win’ situation as it allows us to significantly expand our intellectual property practice in the technology sector while providing Jack and Maureen with the litigation resources that are the life-blood of our firm.”
In addition to the firm’s present offices in Birmingham and Atlanta, Heninger Garrison Davis will open offices in New York and New Jersey in order to better serve its new clients. Please visit http://hgdlawfirm.com to learn more about the firm.
