McDermott Snags Ex-Orrick IP Pro for Silicon Valley Office


Kieran Kieckhefer cited McDermott’s “phenomenal trial practice and IP trial practice” as reasons for leaving another major law firm to join the Silicon Valley office as an IP partner. Sarah Chapin Columbia praised Ms. Kieckhefer as “extremely skilled at legal trial strategy and [with] a great command of many of the most important consumer and business technologies in use today,” while Daniel Alberti said she “will play a key role in representing McDermott’s IP litigation clients.”
