MGI Opens Third Office and Expands Litigation Division

November 7, 2012

Intellectual property law firm, Maschoff Gilmore & Israelsen (MGI) announced today that six litigators have joined the firm, raising the number of attorneys to 23. MGI also announced the opening of a third office in Orange County, California, to service its growing California client base.

Experienced litigators Larry R. Laycock and David R. Wright join MGI as senior shareholders and together with MGI attorney C.J. Veverka will lead MGI’s elite litigation practice. Both are first-chair trial attorneys, each with more than 25 years of experience representing clients in complex litigation intellectual property matters, including patent, trademark, trade secret, and copyright cases.

Attorneys Tyson K. Hottinger, Jared J. Braithwaite, and Adam B. Beckstrom, along with Taylor J. Wright (who is awaiting bar exam results in California) join MGI as associates. Each offers unique expertise in science, engineering, communications and technology, and together will provide a new dimension to MGI’s wide-ranging litigation practice.

“These new attorneys are highly specialized and will take MGI’s litigation practice to a whole new level,” said Founding Shareholder and Managing Director Eric Maschoff. “Larry and Dave are widely respected trial lawyers with proven records for achieving favorable results for their clients. With the addition of these six litigators, MGI’s world-class transactional practice is now complemented with a full-service, world-class litigation practice that will enable our clients to successfully protect and defend their valuable intellectual property,” he continued.

With the addition of these six new attorneys, MGI is also opening a third office in Orange County, California, to complement its main office in Park City, Utah, and its second office in Salt Lake City, Utah.

“We are pleased to announce the opening of a third office in Orange County,” said Senior Shareholder and Head of the Litigation Division C.J Veverka. “This new office will allow us to provide exceptional transactional and litigation services to our clients in the West Coast high-tech corridor and will serve as a base of operations during our frequent litigation in California state and federal courts.”
