This merger seems to be in line with the trend of IP firms shrinking or merging due to the changes in patent law, which makes it harder for plaintiffs to win cases. Other recent examples include IP firms Wong Cabello being acquired by Blank Rome and Mavrikakis Law Group being acquired by Haynes and Boone. Earlier this month, IP firm Kenyon & Kenyon downsized to 95 attorneys, when they had 200 back in 2009.
