United States: Morrison & Foerster Welcomes the Team of David Manspeizer and Greg Chopskie to the IP Litigation Group
Last Updated: October 28 2016

Intellectual property litigators David Manspeizer and Greg Chopskie have joined Morrison & Foerster as partners in New York and Washington, D.C., respectively. David joins the firm effective immediately and Greg joins October 24.

David and Greg will significantly expand our life sciences litigation practice, particularly our work for branded pharmaceutical firms in the U.S., Asia, and Europe. Their deep knowledge of the pharmaceutical and life sciences industries, and their strong blend of in-house and law firm experience will be valuable assets for our clients.

David joins the firm from WilmerHale where he was an IP litigation partner and focused on patent litigation, particularly for branded pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. He was formerly chief intellectual property officer for Wyeth, leading a 140-member global IP department. Greg joins Morrison & Foerster from Gilead Sciences where he was associate general counsel for IP and focused on high-profile domestic and international patent litigation. Before that, he served in senior in-house counsel positions at Wyeth and Shionogi.

Morrison & Foerster's IP Litigation Practice Group comprises a powerhouse of trial lawyers and appellate specialists, coupled with a patent prosecution team that is unrivaled in its depth of technical expertise. The firm's 150 IP litigators are regularly at the forefront of ground-breaking intellectual property disputes for the world's leading high-tech, consumer products, and life sciences companies. Our new partners highlight our continued focus on growing our East Coast IP litigation bench, following Mark Whitaker's arrival in D.C. earlier this year.

David can be reached at dmanspeizer@mofo.com or at (212) 468-8015.
Greg can be reached at gchopskie@mofo.com or (202) 887-8731.
