BOSTON – Oct. 25, 2021 Global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP continues the strategic growth of its Intellectual Property & Technology (IP) and Life Sciences & Medical Technology Practices in the firm’s Boston office adding two associates and two Ph.D. technology specialists.

Joshua I. Rudawitz and Korey A. Wilson, Ph.D. are joining as associates and are the latest additions to a growing IP team in Boston that earlier this year added three life sciences patent attorneys and over 15 IP and life sciences attorneys and professionals across the firm. Also joining Greenberg Traurig’s Boston office in the Intellectual Property & Technology and Life Sciences & Medical Technology practices are technology specialists Samantha Pilicer, who holds a Ph.D. in chemistry, and Lisa L. Scudder, who holds a Ph.D. in pharmacology.

“This year, Greenberg Traurig’s Boston office has added many talented lateral attorneys in key practices that are important to our clients,” David J. Dykeman and Terence P. McCourt, co-managing shareholders of the firm’s Boston office, said. “The additions of Joshua and Korey deepen our IP team’s strategic patent prosecution capabilities in the sophisticated areas of biotechnology, life sciences, and technology so that we can continue to provide proactive and creative strategies to our clients.” 

Rudawitz has more than 10 years of multi-faceted strategic IP law experience, including as a primary patent examiner with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and counseling clients of various sizes with their intellectual property needs. He focuses his practice on the preparation and prosecution of patents and trademarks in fields including medical instruments and devices, mechanical devices, consumer electronics, software and mobile applications, and business and commercial methods.
