McDermott Adds Former IP Boutique Leader in Boston


Kristina “Kris” Bieker-Brady joined McDermott’s Boston office as an IP partner focused in life sciences. Ms. Bieker-Brady previously practiced at an IP boutique firm and she said “it’s clear my clients needed” McDermott’s full service package. “My clients grew to the point they were doing [initial public offerings], M&A activity and a lot of financings. It was getting lonely over there being in a prosecution-only firm, because I didn’t have any securities counsel and what not.”
