Los Angeles-based law firm Sheppard Mullin announced on its website on May 17, that it had hired leading IP litigator Michael Heimbold who moved over from Washington-based Steptoe Johnson.

Speaking on the occasion, Guy N. Halgren, the chairman of Sheppard Mullin, said, “Mike’s practice straddles general business litigation and intellectual property litigation and transactional matters, practice areas that Sheppard Mullin has significantly developed.  His knowledge and experience is both complementary and supplementary to our existing practices, and we welcome him to the firm.”

On his part, Heimbold commented, “Sheppard Mullin is a top-notch full service firm that has strong litigation capabilities and offers an excellent platform to support my clients and grow my practice.  I was particularly attracted to Sheppard Mullin by the firm’s, collegial atmosphere and entrepreneurial culture.  I am also impressed by the depth and breadth of Sheppard Mullin’s corporate practice group, as well as the strength of firm’s patent litigation practice.”
