IP lawyer Kevin Anderson has left Wiley Rein for Duane Morris and will work in the firm’s Washington, DC office as a partner.

Anderson, who was chair of Wiley Rein’s patent litigation practice, has experience in computer science and wireless communications in particular.

He has also worked on copyright issues for technology and computer-related companies, as well as on trademark and trade dress infringement.

“Kevin’s clients benefit from both his litigator’s perspective and his innovator’s mindset,” said Matthew Taylor, CEO and chairman of Duane Morris.

Patrick McPherson, managing partner of Duane Morris’s Washington, DC office, added that Anderson adds “even more depth to our robust IP practice group, both here in the district and across our platform”.

Before his legal career, Anderson designed software and computer systems for several companies.
