Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP is primarily active in the development of US patent portfolios, but also shoulders a substantial international caseload that accounts for roughly a third of the overall practice. Practice head Jack Barufka is based in the firm’s main office in MacLean, Northern Virginia, but the group also has a prominent office in Texas where Josh Tucker, an AI, blockchain, 5G and edge computing enthusiast focuses on assisting start-ups including unicorns, and hi-tech companies with the development of management of their patent portfolio. At the USPTO, the practice frequently acts in inter partes reviews, covered business method reviews, and post-grant reviews, as well as in derivation proceedings. In December 2019 Michael Chibib joined Bracewell LLP while Howard Wisnia left to found Wisnia PC. Nicole Cunningham and Steve Moore joined Zhong Lun Law Firm in December 2019 and January 2020, respectively.
