Mayer Brown announced on Thursday that a team of 11 lawyers led by well-known intellectual property lawyer Jamie Beaber has joined the law firm. The lawyers are leaving Steptoe & Johnson to join Mayer Brown. Beaber is joined in the move by four counsel and six associates in Washington DC and Chicago.
Speaking on the team joining Mayer Brown, the law firm’s co-leader of global Intellectual Property practice, Alan Grimaldi, said, “Jamie is well-known throughout the industry for his technical patent litigation work – particularly before the ITC bar – and we are thrilled to welcome him and his team to the firm.”
John Mancini, the other co-leader of the global Intellectual Property practice group of the firm added, “Jamie’s significant experience handling Section 337 cases before the ITC on behalf of a diverse array of technologies further enhances Mayer Brown’s existing capabilities in this area and will be a huge asset in servicing our global clients.”
Mr. Beaber has been practicing intellectual property law for close to two decades and is known for intellectual property litigation, including unfair import actions and customs issues related with Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930. He has handled more than 50 investigations before the US International Trade Commission and also has extensive experience in representing clients before US district courts.
Beaber is affiliated with several bar associations and serves on numerous committees. Currently, he serves as the Co-Chair of the Federal Circuit Bar Association’s International Trade Committee. He is a frequent writer and speaker on patent litigation topics, including ITC proceedings and enforcement, Section 337 investigations and trade secrets. In 2012 and 2013, he was named a “Rising Star” by Law360 for his work handling high-stakes cases at the ITC.
Jamie Beaber holds an LLM from Georgetown University Law Center, a JD, magna cum laude, from Thomas M. Cooley Law, and a BS from the University of North Dakota.
