McDermott Will & Emery is pleased to announce the arrival of Timur S. Engin as partner in the Firmís Intellectual Property, Media & Technology Department based in Silicon Valley.

Mr. Enginís practice focuses on patent litigation and he has experience in the biotechnology, semiconductor, computer networking, geographic information system, wireless communications, medical device, chemical, consumer appliance, commercial graphics and digital video recorder industries. He has also prosecuted patents related to medical devices and techniques, environmental biology and computer networking. Mr. Engin has represented individual and corporate clients in private securities litigation and is experienced in internal corporate investigations.

"Timur is an important addition to the Firmís growing intellectual property practice, California alone has added six intellectual property partners this year," commented Anthony de Alcuaz, partner-in-charge of the Silicon Valley office. "He brings a wealth of experience from which our clients will greatly benefit."

Mr. Engin earned his J.D. from the University of Virginia School of Law and his B.S. in biology from the University of South Carolina, Honors College. He is registered to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and is admitted to the bars of California and Massachusetts. Mr. Engin is also admitted to practice in the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts, the Northern District of California and the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

The Silicon Valley office of McDermott Will & Emery opened in 1997, and is celebrating 10 years of growth and success serving clients, regionally, nationally and internationally this year. The office has played an integral role in the Firmís explosive West Coast expansion over the past few years. Lawyers based in the Silicon Valley office provide a broad range of corporate, intellectual property, litigation and tax services to clients in a variety of industries. These industries include biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, alcoholic beverages and products, gaming, computer hardware, software, networks and telecommunications.

McDermottís Intellectual Property, Media & Technology Department includes more than 240 lawyers and patent agents. McDermott is recognized for its trial and appellate experience, and is ranked as one of the strongest IP litigation firms for both plaintiffs and defendants, as well as one of the most active firms before the ITC. McDermottís practice in procurement and licensing in the patent, trademark and copyright areas is recognized for its depth and breadth. Rounding out our intellectual property, media and technology services, the team provides client counseling and advice regarding trade secret, unfair competition, advertising, entertainment and computer law.

McDermott Will & Emery is ranked among the leading transactional law firms in a first-of-kind report, Law Firm Leaders and Contenders in the Corporate Transactions Market, just released by BTI Consulting. McDermott, an international law firm with more than 1,100 lawyers, ranked among the top nine firms overall and was identified as a "major player" among transactional law firms for both domestic and cross-border transactions.

From its global platform, McDermott offers a broad array of transactional services through globally integrated teams with experience in M&A, tax, labor/benefits, intellectual property, regulatory matters and disputes. The study mentioned McDermott as among an "elite group of law firms [that] shine in international transactions." According to BTI, McDermott is identified by clients as a "top hiring choice" for international transactions.

"Whether a transaction is large or small, domestic or international, it requires a breadth of skills and experience to manage efficiently and close successfully," stated Harvey Freishtat, Firm Chairman. "Companies are increasingly looking for teams that understand the client's business goals and execute flawlessly. I am particularly pleased with our recognition in Europe as well as the United States."

Timothy Alvino, co-head of the Firmís Corporate Department added: "McDermott is particularly well suited to meet a companyís transactional needs, because we have premier practice groups in such areas as corporate, finance, benefits, intellectual property, antitrust and tax. These groups function as integrated deal teams across our platform and link with sector-based teams across a broad range of industries. This combination of strong subspecialty skill and in-depth industry knowledge provides clients superior levels of competence, practical business sense and service."

"We have an international platform that has the resources, talent and geographic reach to service multinational and other corporations and financial institutions who operate in the key global economic centers," added David Dalgarno, head of the Firm's London office. "With a proven track record for project management, we have experience in a wide variety of sectors encompassing traditional 'old' economies and the new high tech economies worldwide."

McDermott completed nearly 100 M&A transactions in 2006 according to Mergerstat, an industry data provider. The Firm's M&A practice is recognized worldwide, placing in the top 20 in several deal tables in 2006 and 2007 by Bloomberg (Global Legal M&A and Global Financial M&A), Thomson Financial (Worldwide Rankings for M&A/Legal Advisors and Americas Rankings for M&A/Legal Advisors) and Mergermarket (Global M&A, North American M&A, Global Top Deals and North America Top Deals for YTD 2007).

During 2007, the Firm has completed nearly 85 M&A transactions, and was recognized for its involvement in the top ten U.S. deals announced by Thomson Financial through June 2007. McDermott played a key role in three of the 10 largest deals, including the leveraged buyout of TXU and the spinoffs of Tyco Electronics and the Tyco Healthcare Group.
