White & Case hires former Ropes & Gray partner

Law firm White & Case has hired Charles Larsen as a partner in its global intellectual property practice in Boston.

Larsen, who is dual-qualified in the US and England, focuses his practice on strategic patent advocacy and counselling on US and European patents, with a particular emphasis on the life sciences, including medical devices, diagnostics and chemistry.

He formerly served as a partner at law firm Ropes & Gray in Boston.

Dave Koschik, head of White & Case’s US growth team, said: “The addition of Chuck reinforces our commitment to serving the Boston market and to growing in the US.

“Chuck will enhance our ability to guide businesses in the life sciences and technology industries, as they continue to develop valuable products that drive the global economy.”

Dimitrios Drivas, head of White & Case’s global IP practice, added: “Being qualified to practise in the US and the UK enables Chuck to provide companies with advice and strategy that are not limited to a single jurisdiction.”

Larsen’s arrival follows the hiring of partners Michael Kendall, Kevin Bolan, Lauren Papenhausen and Matthew Turnell to the firm’s Boston office, which opened in April.
