Jones Day has welcomed William Rooklidge as a partner in its intellectual property group in Irvine.
He arrives from Howrey LLP where he most recently served as co-chair of the firm’s worldwide IP practice.
Rooklidge has a wealth of experience in patent infringement litigation particularly within the communications, electronics, and financial service sectors.
He also has considerable trial and appellate experience, including arguing many cases before the US Court of Appeals.
“Bill’s arrival not only provides additional strength to our intellectual property practice, it also demonstrates the type of lawyer that want to be part of our growing success in California,” said Joe Sims, partner in charge of coordinating Jones Day’s activities in the state.
