Winston & Strawn

Winston & Strawn LLP announced in recent days it has added Alfred Fabricant and Lawrence Drucker as partners to its New York office. Fabricant will head the firm’s IP practice in New York.

Both attorneys join from Dickstein Shapiro, LLP.  Both have cultivated a robust IP litigation practice through their representation of clients in cutting-edge technologies related to software used for analyzing media audience and marketing information data, radio frequency identification, digital watermarking, robotics, optics, and Web design platforms. Their clients are based in the United States, Europe, and Asia.


Fabricant has over thirty years of litigation experience. He is an experienced trial lawyer, and concentrates his practice on patent, copyright, trademark, unfair competition, entertainment, antitrust, and other commercial litigation matters. He has, on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants, tried cases to verdict as first chair in a broad range of technical disciplines, including digital and analog electronics, robotics, computer software, mechanical, chemical, pharmaceutical, and business method patents.

For twenty years, Drucker has concentrated his practice on patent, trademark, and copyright litigation, including trials and appeals. His work covers a broad range of areas, and includes patent infringement matters involving consumer electronics, audience measurement systems, medical devices, robotics, optics, radio frequency identification products, and floor coverings.

Michael Elkin, managing partner of Winston’s New York office was quoted as saying in a press release at the firm’s website: “Fred and Larry bring enormous talent and energy to our IP litigation practice. Their nuanced understanding of advanced technologies, plus their track record of success in the courtroom, are tremendous assets to existing and new clients in New York.”

Thomas Fitzgerald, firm managing partner was quoted as saying: “We welcome the remarkable skills and savvy that Fred and Larry bring to the entire firm. Their reputation and know-how are an outstanding fit for the practice and the firm’s global platform.”

Fabricant earned his J.D., with highest distinction, from The John Marshall Law School in 1978 and his B.A. in Political Science, magna cum laude, from the University of Miami. Drucker earned his J.D. from Columbia Law School in 1988 and his B.A. in Economics and Political Science, summa cum laude, from Queens College of the City University of New York.

The addition of Fabricant and Drucker follows the firm’s recent expansion of its global intellectual property litigation group and regional capabilities. Most recently, Winston added prominent IP litigation attorney Michael Murray to its New York office. As well, David Enzminger and David Dalke joined the firm’s Los Angeles office. In addition over fifteen litigation partners from the former Howrey law firm joined its Chicago and Washington, D.C. offices, as well as its newly opened Houston office.

International law firm Winston & Strawn LLP has nearly 1,000 attorneys in fifteen offices in Beijing, Charlotte, Chicago, Geneva, Hong Kong, Houston, London, Los Angeles, Moscow, New York, Newark, Paris, San Francisco, Shanghai, and Washington, D.C. The firm serves clients of all types and sizes, in both the private and the public sector.
