Kobre & Kim Expands Conflict-Free IP Practice with Lateral Hire

SAN FRANCISCO--()--Kobre & Kim announced the addition of Daniel Zaheer to its San Francisco office, and the continued expansion of its conflict-free intellectual property litigation team in the Bay Area.

Mr. Zaheer is an experienced trial lawyer, whose practice focuses on enforcing intellectual property rights and defending against charges of infringement. He has handled disputes involving a variety of industries, including wireless communication systems, mobile device interfaces, biotechnology and mobile applications.

Mr. Zaheer joins Michael Ng, who helped launch Kobre & Kim’s San Francisco office in January. The two previously worked together in Kerr & Wagstaffe’s Intellectual Property group, representing organizations with substantial IP-related legal matters, such as the Commonwealth Scientific Research Organisation of Australia (“CSIRO”) which is credited with one of the most successful projects in recent times to enforce a single patent, involving recoveries of US $400 million+.

Commenting on his move to Kobre & Kim, Mr. Zaheer said, “I look forward to joining Mike in the San Francisco office and being a part of the growth of this practice. San Francisco is a hub for important intellectual property disputes.”

The firm’s new San Francisco location provides direct access to a litigation team based in one of the largest technology and financial markets in the world, adding to the firm’s international resources that have earned it a reputation as the premier boutique for high-profile, multijurisdictional disputes and investigations.

“Daniel’s experience with high stakes intellectual property disputes and his reputation in the industry make him an invaluable addition to our San Francisco office,” said Kobre & Kim co-founder Michael Kim.

Mr. Zaheer received his Bachelor’s from University of California, Los Angeles, and his J.D. from Stanford Law School.

With the opening of the San Francisco office, Kobre & Kim’s offering now includes four offices across the U.S., in addition to locations in Asia, Europe, and several offshore jurisdictions. Kobre & Kim focuses on special counsel engagements in complex high-profile disputes and investigations. This conflict-free profile allows the firm to act in the world’s leading jurisdictions in complex financial, corporate, onshore/offshore and insolvency disputes as well as cross-border government enforcement, regulatory investigations and international judgment enforcement.
