BOSTON, MA—Barnes & Thornburg has announced the opening of a Boston office, its 20th in the U.S., with six partners. The new office is anchored by the addition of highly experienced intellectual property partners Ronald E. Cahill, Heather B. Repicky, Rory P. Pheiffer and Derek Roller who join current partners Robyn S. Maguire and Matthew Leno. Boston is a critical market for the life sciences sector; the Boston office will reflect the firm’s established and growing intellectual property and life sciences practice as well as its corporate M&A, investment fund formation, commercial litigation and white collar practice groups.
Barnes & Thornburg’s move to open in Boston follows the addition of an accomplished team of attorneys in Delaware earlier in June and the opening of a New York office in 2020. The firm also opened offices in Raleigh, Ann Arbor and Salt Lake City in late 2019, which added 17 life sciences attorneys to its IP team.
