Troy, MI -- Two seasoned patent attorneys have joined the Troy, Michigan, IP firm of Reising, Ethington, Barnes, Kisselle.
Attorney David Simonelli has extensive experience in all aspects of domestic and international intellectual property law. In 2003, Simonelli was a delegate in Geneva for the United Nations for the World Summit for the Information Society (WSIS). Two years later, he authored a treatise
that was presented at the 2005 WSIS Tunis Summit. He has made presentations on international patent and copyright laws, and has participated in panel discussions with European patent attorneys on the harmonization of the intellectual property laws between the United States
and other countries worldwide. Before joining the firm, Simonelli was a member of Clark Hill's Intellectual Property Practice Group.
"David's energy and experience will be a great fit at our firm. Similar to many of our attorneys, David is in the prime of his career, skilled and motivated to practice high quality IP law. Both at home and in international markets," said Reising shareholder Jake Grove.
Attorney Rick Hoffmann is an intellectual property litigator who has been the lead counsel in more than thirty-five intellectual property litigation matters, and has argued nine cases in front of Federal Courts of Appeals. During the United States Supreme Court case of TrafFix Devices, Inc. v. Marketing Displays, Inc., Hoffmann helped lead the co-counsel team. In preparation for this landmark case, Hoffmann worked with attorney John G. Roberts, who is now the Chief Justice of the United States. This case was decided in 2001 with a unanimous decision in favor Hoffmann's client.
"Rick Hoffmann is a significant addition to our litigation staff. We have invested heavily in state-of-the-art technology, research and fact finding systems, libraries and support staff with an eye to attracting an attorney with solid credentials and a great track record," said Reising shareholder
