Phil Hampton Appointed Administrative Partner, Washington, D.C.


WASHINGTON, D.C. – Haynes and Boone, LLP has named Partner Phil Hampton to the post of administrative partner of the firm’s Washington, D.C. office.

Hampton succeeds Jim Wade, who recently announced he is leaving the firm to join the AT&T legal department, heading up its antitrust group.

“We are delighted that Phil has accepted this new role with the firm and look forward to his leadership of this vital office,” said Tim Powers, a member of the firm’s appointments committee. “We are very sorry to see Jim leave, but we believe Phil will be a great administrative partner for us in Washington.”

Hampton is a partner in the Intellectual Property Litigation Practice Group who moved to the firm’s Washington, D.C. office in May 2012. He has more than 30 years of experience practicing intellectual property law as both a practitioner and an administrator, with a focus on patent and trademark litigation, patent and trademark counseling, trademark prosecution, IP licensing, and counseling with regard to the intellectual property aspects of the Internet.

From 1994 until 1998, Phil was the assistant commissioner for trademarks at the USPTO. In that position, he had overall responsibility for trademark operations, and focused on restructuring the trademark registration process and improving the policies of the USPTO to align them more closely with the needs of its customers.
