Kurt Rogers, an Authority in IP Litigation, Joins Bingham’s Global Team

New York, NY -- Bingham McCutchen LLP expanded its intellectual property practice with the addition of Kurt Rogers as a partner in the New York office.

"Kurt is a great fit with our IP litigation practice in New York and across Bingham," said Richard Taffet, co-leader of Bingham’s Intellectual Property Litigation and Patent Prosecution Group.

While at Latham, Rogers litigated on behalf of AOL, Gateway, Nintendo and other companies in cases involving technologies such as nylon and chemical intermediates, digital subscriber line (DSL), instant messaging and chat systems, liquid crystal displays, video game systems, multicasting, and DNA probes.
