Latest Addition Bolsters Growing IP Practice in Key Market

New York, NY -- DLA Piper announced today that Mark Rueh has joined the firm as a partner in its Intellectual Property practice in New York. Rueh is the second partner to join DLA Piper’s IP practice in New York this month, following Drew Wintringham’s move to the firm on April 8.

Rueh focuses his practice on patent litigation and has significant experience litigating trademark, copyright, software, trade secret and breach of contract claims. He counsels and advises clients on all other aspects of traditional intellectual property including patent infringement, intellectual property rights and licensing, and has provided counsel to clients in a broad range of industries, including the medical device, software and automotive industries, among others.

"Mark is a seasoned and experienced patent litigator, having advised clients on the most sensitive, high-stakes patent and IP litigation matters involving medical device, software and automotive technologies," said John Allcock, chair of the U.S. Intellectual Property group. "His success in patent infringement and patent prosecution suits, combined with his knowledge and capabilities as a global IP counselor complements our existing strong team of patent litigators and intellectual property practitioners."

"I’ve worked with Mark for several years and have tremendous respect for his skills and intellect," said Drew Wintringham, head of the IP Practice in the New York office. "Mark is a great lawyer and a real team player, and his addition is a boost to our growing IP team in New York."

Rueh earned a B.S. from the University of Michigan in Electrical Engineering and a J.D. from Syracuse University College of Law.
