Anderson joins Duane Morris from Wiley Rein LLP where he was a partner and had been chair of that firm’s patent litigation practice.

“With his deep experience in patent litigation and his impressive background in computer science, Kevin’s clients benefit from both his litigator’s perspective and his innovator’s mindset,” said Matthew A.

He has extensive experience in patent litigation, counseling and licensing; copyrights for technology and computer-related companies; and trademark/trade dress infringement. He regularly represents clients in the wireless communications industry and the computer industries, ranging from Fortune 100 companies to innovators and entrepreneurs. Prior to becoming a lawyer, Anderson designed software and computer systems in Silicon Valley and Research Triangle Park for more than a decade.

“We’re delighted to welcome Kevin to our IP practice,” said L.
