Menlo Park, CA (PRWEB) February 16, 2016
Carr & Ferrell LLP, a leading Silicon Valley-based firm offering strategic Intellectual Property, Corporate and Litigation legal services, announced today Scott Mosko has joined the firm as a partner. Mr. Mosko is a well-known litigation attorney in most Federal District Courts in Northern California, as well as many California county state courts, specializing in Intellectual Property and business dispute litigation and cyber security protection.
Scott most recently defended a trademark claim and acted as lead counsel in successfully asserting a First Amendment and anti-SLAPP defense and a claim for attorneys’ fees. He has handled cases assigned to most of the judges and magistrates in the Northern District, where he has tried patent, trade secret and copyright matters. More recently, Scott acquired a specialty in cyber security matters. Using the relationships developed with Federal and State law agents assigned to cyber piracy crimes task forces, Scott advises clients on how to protect themselves from such invasions and how to form cyber security teams to limit the effects from a cyber intrusion.
“We are pleased to welcome such an esteemed attorney to our firm,” said firm co-founder John Ferrell. “Scott’s background and experience will be a strong addition to the excellence we offer our clients in helping them defend their intellectual property rights.”
Scott Mosko said “I am excited to join forces with my good friend, John Ferrell, perhaps the best known patent attorney in Silicon Valley.” Mosko added he was also eager to work alongside Barry Carr, firm co-founder. “Barry is a wiz at all corporate-related matters, from formation to startup, to acquisition to M&A, and everything in between. The opportunity to collaborate with John and Barry was too great to pass up.”
Scott was recognized by The Legal 500 U.S. for his expertise in trade secret litigation. His appearances include multiple matters in the California state trial and appellate courts and the Supreme Court. He has lectured on many IP-related topics—most recently on the trade secret protections implemented into the America Invents Act (A.I.A.) in Seattle and on patent damages in San Francisco.
