Paul Hastings boosts New York practice

Former Holland & Knight trial lawyer Merri Moken has joined Paul Hastings’ team in New York as of counsel.

Moken, who spent nearly four years as partner at Holland & Knight, focuses her practice on patent infringement matters as well as trade secret misappropriation and contract-related matters.

She represents clients in the biotech, regenerative medicine, chemical and pharmaceutical fields, as well as the mechanical and electrical arts.

Bruce Wexler, global co-chair of the IP practice at Paul Hastings, said: “Merri is an excellent litigator with expertise in patent litigation, trademark, trade secret misappropriation, patent counselling and contract matters, and she will be a terrific addition to our IP practice, helping her clients develop, enforce and defend their patent portfolios.

Moken has practised before federal district and appellate courts and the International Trade Commission.

“With strength across the board in life sciences and technology, Paul Hastings is the perfect platform to serve my clients and partner with them to achieve success,” said Moken.
