Summary: Hughes Hubbard has taken on two new partners with excellent credentials in IP Law.

Beyond this, they’ve even partnered together at Pennie & Edmonds LLP and then both moving on to Fried, Frank, before finally ending up at Hughes Hubbard.

Dabney served as head of Fried’s Intellectual Property and Technology Practice, and aside from that works as adjunct professor at Cornell. He has first-chaired countless patent jury trials and won in the U.S. Supreme Court three times, notably in KSR International Co. v. Teleflex Inc.

Rabinowitz meanwhile has put his M.D. to use, and his immunology degree to practice in such cases as concern DNA technology, medical diagnostics, and various other areas of medicine.

“Stephen and I are thrilled to join one of the most respected litigation teams in the country,” Dabney said. “Hughes Hubbard has a long and respected history, and our clients will benefit from the deep knowledge of the patent lawyers, technical advisors, and litigators throughout the firm.”

Certainly two men who share such an extensive background, including lightning bolt credentials have a lot to offer a firm like Hughes.
