Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt has tapped Troy Greenfield to serve as partner in charge of its Seattle office. 

Greenfield, who joined Portland, Ore.-based Schwabe from Bullivant Houser Bailey last year, replaces a three-attorney team that was leading Schwabe’s 32-lawyer Seattle office.

Greenfield’s practice focuses on intellectual property, securities and bankruptcy-creditors’ rights litigation. Before joining 150-attorney Schwabe, he was managing shareholder of Bullivant’s Seattle office. Bullivant has seen a dramatic reduction in its number of attorneys in recent years, going from more than 230 lawyers in 2005 to 58 today.

Consolidating the leadership of the Seattle office puts Schwabe in a better position to deal with client demands and firm competition, said Schwabe managing partner Mark Long.

“Troy is the right leader at the right time for our Seattle team,” he said in a press release.

Previously leading the Seattle office were Al AuYeung, Jennifer Campbell and Bert Markovich, who remain shareholders at Schwabe.

Greenfield, 48, graduated from Willamette University College of Law.
