Wilmington, DE (PRWEB) March 21, 2016
RatnerPrestia is pleased to announce that Jeffrey B. Bove, former Managing Partner and Chair of the Intellectual Property Litigation Section of Connolly Bove Lodge & Hutz LLP, has joined the firm and will be based in the firm’s Wilmington, Delaware office. Mr. Bove has decades of experience in patent litigation in the District of Delaware and elsewhere, and has also handled numerous complex commercial litigations. He successfully worked on high profile cases such as the Lipitor® patent cases for Pfizer, Bayer v. Housey for Bayer Corp. (Case No. 04-1194, Fed. Cir.), and Dawson v. Rohm and Haas Company (Case No. 79-669) at the United States Supreme Court. He also currently serves on the Board of Governors of the Federal Circuit Bar Association.
Mr. Bove states, “RatnerPrestia has been in Wilmington, Delaware for many years and is a perfect fit for my current practice. It is important to me to stay true to my roots and remain with a full service IP boutique. I plan to build our Delaware counsel practice and with my skilled team, will work closely with co-counsel and their clients litigating cases before the District of Delaware. RatnerPrestia has very talented professionals across four offices who we hope to integrate with and build upon. I am excited about pursuing this endeavor.”
Jonathan H. Spadt, Chief Executive Officer of RatnerPrestia, says, “Jeff’s reputation speaks for itself, and the energy and experiences he brings will be a benefit to both our firm and our clients. I am personally proud to have him join us.”
The firm remains committed to providing industry-leading technical and patent prosecution services, and to growing other practice areas that are necessary to serve innovative clients in a global market. This was the driver for opening offices in Washington, D.C. and Munich, and for hiring the level of people that have been attracted to this vision. “A firm our size -- intimate enough to maintain long-term relationships with each client, but large enough to offer the kind of breadth and depth in all things IP -- is what sets us apart. Jeff fits squarely within this plan. The addition of Jeff Bove and his team to our firm is fantastic, and we are pleased to have them join RatnerPrestia,” concluded Spadt.
