Goodwin Procter has added an investigative attorney from the U.S. International Trade Commission to its Washington office, the firm announced on Tuesday.
Kecia Reynolds, who had worked in the ITC's office of unfair import investigations since 2007, joined Goodwin as a partner in its intellectual property litigation practice. Reynolds specializes in intellectual property matters related to biotechnology, pharmaceuticals and computer technology.
"I was looking for an opportunity to continue to do ITC work, and Goodwin Procter provided me with a great opportunity to work with some fantastic people," Reynolds said.
"The experience Kecia has gained while at the ITC and elsewhere will provide Goodwin's IP litigation clients with exceptional insight into all aspects of" ITC investigations concerning patent and trademark infringement by imported goods, Goodwin partner Thomas Scott Jr., chairman of the firm's intellectual property practice, said in a written statement. "Her extensive appellate and ANDA [Abbreviated New Drug Application] background bring additional depth to our roster of accomplished IP litigators, and we're delighted she has chosen to join Goodwin Procter."
