McDermott Will & Emery announced Tuesday that it will welcome Bernard Knight Jr., currently serving as general counsel of the Patent and Trademark Office (PTO), as a new partner.
Knight will bring his years of intellectual property law experience to the firm’s IP Litigation Practice Group, operating out of Washington, D.C. “I’m really honored to be joining their ranks,” Knight said.
Knight will join the firm September 16. He said that he was drawn to McDermott in large part because it is “one of the pre-eminent firms in intellectual property,” and would provide a “great platform” to do IP work for clients.
