Kenyon & Kenyon LLP has announced that Michael N. Zachary has rejoined the firm as a litigation partner in the Palo Alto office. The addition of Mr. Zachary will further strengthen the already highly-ranked patent litigation practice at Kenyon, underscoring the firm’s commitment to providing a full complement of intellectual property legal services to its clients out of its Palo Alto office. Mr. Zachary will continue his practice advising clients on patent infringement, trade secret, trademark and other intellectual property litigation matters.

Mr. Zachary joins Kenyon from the Seattle, Washington office of intellectual property boutique Christensen O’Connor Johnson & Kindness PLLC, where he was a partner focused primarily on intellectual property litigation and enforcement. Mr. Zachary began his legal career at Morrison & Foerster in California, where he became a partner in 1989. He has served as counsel to large, mid-size and start-up clients in the U.S. and Japan including Skype, Amazon, Wacom, PRISM Pharma and Boston Scientific in patent and other IP litigation matters.

Michael D. Loughnane, Managing Partner of Kenyon, said: “Mike Zachary’s skills in the courtroom, combined with his work across a broad range of industries, provide him with a unique perspective that will enhance our litigation practice. Our Palo Alto office is central to our ability to be responsive to our clients on the west coast of the US and in Asia, and we are delighted that Mike has chosen to return to Kenyon”

Michael J. Lennon, senior partner and chair and director of Kenyon’s European Practice Group, said: “Mike Zachary adds substantial depth to our patent litigation team by virtue of his extensive experience representing companies in complex litigation matters.”

Mr. Zachary said: “I am thrilled to return to Kenyon, where I can rejoin the firm’s premier intellectual property litigation practice. I look forward to offering clients of the firm an integrated approach to high-stakes patent and other intellectual property litigation.”
