DLA Piper LLP (US) Key Developments

DLA Piper Appoints Liam Prescott as Partner in its Litigation & Regulatory Group, Brisbane

DLA Piper has appointed Liam Prescott as partner in its Litigation & Regulatory group, based in Brisbane, effective 14 July 2014. Liam joins the firm from HopgoodGanim, having previously worked at both Linklaters in London and at Allens Arthur Robinson in Brisbane. Liam has broad experience across all aspects of complex commercial litigation and dispute resolution, including cross-border proceedings. He has significant experience working in the energy and resources sectors including: coal price and power station arbitrations; royalty and project agreement disputes; shareholder oppression claims and related corporate disputes; and judicial reviews of Government decisions relating to energy projects and related infrastructure. He also regularly counsels clients with positional advice in commercial and/or potentially litigious circumstances.

Evolucia Engages DLA Piper

Evolucia Inc. announced on February 3, 2014 that it had been awarded Patent No. 8,635,049 for a 'Light unit with light output pattern synthesized from multiple light sources'. This patent allows Evolucia the proprietary rights to exclusively design, engineer and manufacture LED lights that utilize multiple mounting angles within a LED fixture to precisely 'aim' light at a specific target area. The company announced that it has retained DLA Piper to protect and defend the value and integrity of its patent portfolio. The engagement of DLA Piper is an important milestone for Evolucia as it focuses the company's primary activities to the creation and development of revenue channels from its core Aimed Optics(TM) patents. As Evolucia works with DLA Piper to both enforce and license its patent portfolio, the company will continue to work with its partner, Leader Electronics, to develop new Aimed Optics(TM) products for the roadway and area lighting markets with the 'aim' of further reducing fixture costs and increasing luminaire efficacy.

DLA Piper Announces Executive Appointments

DLA Piper announced that Kevin Finger and Jeffrey Torosian, the former co-chairs of Greenberg Traurig's Chicago Litigation practice, will join the firm's Litigation practice as partners in the Chicago office. Finger focuses his practice on civil and bankruptcy litigation, corporate compliance, and white collar criminal matters. He also represents hedge funds, large corporations and officers and directors. Most recently, he was lead counsel in a multi-billion dollar adversary proceeding associated with a large-scale corporate bankruptcy. Torosian handles commercial disputes involving business transactions, with a concentration on acquisition-related disputes and corporate governance issues. He has litigated and tried cases and arbitrations in over two dozen states across the country. Finger and Torosian's arrival comes on the heels of DLA Piper's recently announced addition of litigator Karl Dial in Dallas.
