Wolf Greenfield Announces Expansion with New Office in New York

Wolf Greenfield has announced the establishment of its new office in New York City. The new office is located in the Chrysler Building in Midtown Manhattan.

The New York office will be headed by shareholder Michael Rader, co-chair of the firm’s Litigation Practice. He will be joined by other shareholders from the firm’s main office in Boston who will spend significant time in New York. The firm also will grow the new office through recruitment of lateral talent and new attorneys.

“Our New York office leverages the strength and momentum of our business,” said Tim Oyer, Wolf Greenfield’s president and managing partner. “We are fortunate to serve clients who are uncompromising in their demand for top-tier representation in strategically building, protecting and enforcing their IP globally. Boston has been the ideal hub of our IP service platform, and with an increasing number of our clients based in New York or doing significant business transactions there, we feel the timing is perfect for us to open a New York office.”

The office will offer a full range of intellectual property services, including litigation, prosecution, post-grant proceedings, freedom to operate, licensing, and diligence across all areas of technology. The firm will add new and lateral attorneys in New York to deliver the same high-quality client service for which the Boston office is known.

“With an already significant and ever-growing client base in New York, we will now be in a position to better serve our local clients, as well as engage with the city’s innovative businesses, universities, and thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem,” said Rader. “The new office also creates opportunities for us to add new talent to our team of 115 attorneys and technology specialists—70 percent of whom have a master’s degree, PhD or MD, and half of whom have industry experience in science or technology.”
