Intellectual Property Litigator John Hintz Moves to Haynes and Boone New York Office
NEW YORK – John Hintz, an intellectual property litigator with more than 20 years of experience has moved to the New York office of Haynes and Boone, LLP as partner.
The addition of Hintz is part of the steady client service expansion for the firm’s New York presence.
“John is a seasoned litigator who has worked on all aspects of patent disputes and has litigated in federal courts throughout the country and before the International Trade Commission,” said Kenneth Bezozo, New York office managing partner. “Adding John supports our goal of broadening and deepening our IP litigation practice.”
Hintz has represented clients in a wide range of industries covering diverse technologies including search engines, financial services, bar-code scanning, Internet-related businesses, telecommunications, computer simulations, commodity chemicals, polymers, process control instruments, medical devices and life sciences. He also has significant transactional, licensing and counseling experience, including advising clients on the IP aspects of mergers and acquisitions as well as on the licensing of IP assets.
His pro bono experience includes obtaining the reversal of a decision that would have resulted in deportation of his client and supervising a team that obtained the release of Dewey Bozella, a man wrongfully convicted for murder and incarcerated for 26 years.
