Dentons Expands Intellectual Property Practice with Arrival of Garreth Sarosi

July 17, 2014 // Franchising.com // Dallas, TX - Dentons announced that Garreth Sarosi has joined the Firm's Intellectual Property and Technology practice as a partner in the Dallas office. He arrives with more than a decade of experience handling complex IP litigation matters in multiple areas of focus, as well as managing antitrust compliance and government investigations, consumer policies, transactional due diligence, class action litigation and more.

Prior to joining Dentons, Sarosi was deputy general counsel and staff vice president of MetroPCS Communications, Inc., a wireless carrier that announced a merger with T-Mobile in 2013. He was a key member of the legal team responsible for due diligence, negotiation, regulatory clearance and integration planning and antitrust compliance in the T-Mobile merger. During the transaction, he handled all regulatory investigations, including those with the Federal Communications Commission and Securities and Exchange Commission, related to the deal.

"Garreth's experience as a deputy general counsel through a major telecoms merger gives him a valuable big-picture perspective on the IP issues that companies typically face," said Dentons US managing partner Mike McNamara. "His arrival strengthens our already formidable IP capabilities on both the litigation and transactional sides."

In the role of general counsel, he directed all of the company's IP-related litigation, including false advertising, non-compete agreement and patent, trademark and trade secret litigation. He also successfully resolved numerous patent infringement actions and oversaw all IP transactions, settlement agreements and prosecution and indemnification matters, including patent and trademark prosecution.

Sarosi is the latest arrival in the Firm's rapid expansion of its nationwide Intellectual Property and Technology group, a top-tier practice consisting of more than 100 lawyers and technically trained professionals. BTI Litigation Outlook 2014 ranked the IP group in the top 10 percent of all law firms for intellectual property litigation and related matters. The Firm has greatly deepened its IP bench in the first half of 2014 with several high-profile hires, most recently with the arrival of a patent litigation team led by partner Michael Samardzija, PhD in Houston. Dr. Russell Tonkovich, an experienced patent litigator, and Lissi Mojica and Kevin Greenleaf, a prominent inter partes review team, also expanded the Firm's IP practice in the Bay Area and Silicon Valley, respectively.

Sarosi earned his JD from George Mason University School of Law. He received his undergraduate degree in Geology from Princeton University.
