Greenberg Traurig new hire expands litigation practice

Greenberg Traurig has hired Andrew Halaby as a shareholder in its Phoenix office.

Halaby brings 25 years of experience as a trial lawyer and business advisor to the Greenberg IP practice. Prior to joining, Halaby was a partner at Phoenix-based Snell & Wilmer.

“The firm’s Western region offices have a special emphasis on the business of technology and corresponding IP challenges, aligning perfectly with Andy’s strong skills in the courtroom as well as his business savvy,” said Greenberg Traurig’s global litigation practice co-chairs Lori Cohen and Jeff Scott.

Halaby has served as lead counsel in patent, trademark, trade dress and copyright infringement cases. He has also led teams in disputes involving computer fraud and abuse, data security, data integration, search engine optimization, software development, software licensing, software conversion, and life sciences.

He has also served on the Arizona Supreme Court’s task force on lawyer ethics, professionalism, and the unauthorised practice of law and chaired the State Bar of Arizona's Conflict Case Committee.

“I am excited to work with Greenberg Traurig’s deep bench of talented IP and technology attorneys and play a role in the growth of the practice and the Phoenix office,” said Halaby.

“I am confident that my clients will benefit from the firm’s global platform of resources, its culture of collaboration and innovation, and the exceptional reputation of its highly respected litigation teams.”
