Foley & Lardner LLP has announced a new office in Salt Lake City with the Utah team specializing in intellectual property litigation.
Now with 25 offices across the world, Foley said that they chose Salt Lake City because of a strong presence in the tech and startup areas.
"This is an opportunity for the firm to be at the forefront of the legal market in a vibrant and growing city,” said Foley Chairman and CEO Jay Rothman in a recent press release.
The intellectual property litigation team is a step in Foley's efforts to offer a complete lineup of services to clients in the Innovative Technology and Health Care & Life Sciences Sectors. The Utah office will welcome Partners David Wright and Jared Braithwaite, Senior Counsel Michael Manookin, and Special Counsel Taylor Wright.
Foley hopes to pull from Utah's strong talent pool and strengthen the relationship with Brigham Young University’s J. Reuben Clark Law School and University of Utah’s S.J. Quinney College of Law.
