A patent practitioner with notable experience as an electrical engineer has joined Day Pitney on the United States East Coast.
Day Pitney has hired George Chaclas in its intellectual property (IP) practice. He has joined in Boston with a view to relocating to the Providence office, which will follow completion of the firm’s merger with Rhode Island firm Howland Evangelista Kohlenberg on 1 July.
Chaclas frequently works with high-profile listed companies, academic institutions, early-stage companies and entrepreneurs, on IP acquisition, brokering licensing agreements, and patent preparation and prosecution, with broader strategic counselling and enforcement matters as further areas of focus.
He has previously advised on patents relating to nanotechnology, semiconductors, business processes, telecommunications standards and medical devices, as well as aviation and quantum computing.
Chaclas spent 11 years as an electrical engineer in the semiconductor sector before coming to the law. He spent five years at Cummings & Lockwood as a patent specialist and 12 years at Edwards & Angell (now Locke Lord) as a lawyer, followed by two years as counsel at Adler Pollock & Sheehan.
Most recently, he ended a four-year tenure at Burns & Levinson, where he became a partner.
In a statement, Day Pitney IP practice chair Elizabeth Alquist said Chaclas’ “patent prosecution experience will add additional bench strength to our existing practice and brings immense value to both our clients and colleagues”.
Also this month a Hengeler Mueller practitioner joined Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe’s Düsseldorf IP licensing and technology transactions practice.
