Prominent Patent Litigator Josh Raskin Joins Bernstein Litowitz Berger & Grossmann LLP

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 12, 2009) - Bernstein Litowitz Berger & Grossmann LLP announces that Joshua L. Raskin has joined its Intellectual Property Litigation Department.

Mr. Raskin brings to BLB&G extensive experience and success in intellectual property litigation, and patent litigation in particular. A registered patent attorney, he has led large, groundbreaking cases in intellectual property arenas, at both the trial and appellate stages.

Mr. Raskin's litigation experience also includes a unique and cutting edge consulting role for his hedge fund clients. He analyzes pending patent litigation and provides advice regarding all aspects of the litigation, including timing and potential outcomes. His research, custom-tailored to the client's needs, assists hedge funds in their investment decisions.

BLB&G Partner Chad Johnson, who leads the firm's IP Litigation Department, explained, "It's very exciting to have Josh join the firm as it represents a significant leap forward for our growing patent and IP litigation practice. We know him well from prosecuting major patent litigations together for our clients and his experience, talent, creativity and professionalism are a major addition to our group."

Mr. Raskin on his affiliation with BLB&G: "I am very pleased to be joining the talented litigators at BLB&G in defending the creativity and innovation of inventors. Patent litigation has become increasingly expensive, making it difficult, if not impossible, for inventors to protect their valuable intellectual property rights. BLB&G's contingency fee model enables us to defend those rights against even the largest of infringers."

BLB&G, a top ranked litigation boutique with an unparalleled track record of obtaining historic recoveries from the largest companies in the U.S. and beyond, has prestigious practices in other diverse areas such as mergers and acquisitions litigation, securities, corporate governance and shareholder rights, and employment law. The firm's IP Litigation Department is prosecuting some of the largest patent litigations in the country. The firm is well known for conducting its cases on a contingency fee basis rather than using the hourly billing model. In addition to obtaining unprecedented monetary recoveries, the firm has litigated numerous seminal cases establishing precedents which have increased market transparency, held wrongdoers accountable, and changed corporate business practices in groundbreaking ways.

Mr. Raskin joins BLB&G from Cozen O'Conner where he was a partner in the Business Law Department. Prior to that, he was a partner with and member of the Executive Committee of Wolf Block LLP in New York. Mr. Raskin earned his law degree from Brooklyn Law School and his undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan College of Engineering.
