Tuesday, September 09, 2008

Palo Alto, CA -- Highly regarded patent litigator Jimmy Shin has joined Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal LLP as a partner in its Silicon Valley office, the law firm announced today. Shin, whose practice focuses on patent infringement litigation before the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) and the federal district courts, comes to Sonnenschein from McDermott Will & Emery.

Shin concentrates on patent infringement litigation involving semiconductor devices, computer hardware and software, digital signal processing, telecommunications networks and optical technologies. Among the companies he has represented are Aristocrat Technologies, Creative Labs, Linear Technology, Metrologic Instruments and Trend Micro.

"Jimmy’s impressive roster of clients includes many well-known names in the technology industry," said Yar Chaikovsky, co-managing partner of Sonnenschein’s Silicon Valley office and a leader of its Patent Litigation practice. "He enjoys a growing reputation in California and beyond not only as one of the patent litigation bar’s rising stars, but also as a leading ITC practitioner."

"Sonnenschein’s patent litigators are among the most respected in the country," stated Shin. "I look forward to working with my new partners to further expand the firm’s patent trial practice, both in Silicon Valley and nationally."

"Jimmy is an excellent addition to our Silicon Valley team," said Tarek Fahmi, co-managing partner. "His success in developing client relationships and high profile in the marketplace will play an important role in attracting new business and top talent to the office."
