COBLENTZ, PATCH NAMES NEW PARTNER Coblentz, Patch, Duffy & Bass announced Tuesday that it has promoted Gregg Ficks to partner. Ficks officially joined the 55-attorney firm’s partnership on Jan. 1. A member of Coblentz’s litigation practice, Ficks specializes in bankruptcy and insolvency matters, with an emphasis on creditors rights. Ficks also handles commercial litigation, particularly telecommunications cases and class action defense. “His extensive experience representing creditors and commercial lessors in bankruptcy and insolvency matters has been invaluable and builds on the wide variety of expertise we are able to offer both new and existing clients,” said Managing Partner Harry O’Brien in a statement. Ficks joined Coblentz as special counsel in 2002, after a 10-year stint at Crosby, Heafey, Roach & May, where he was a partner. A graduate of UC-Davis’ King Hall School of Law, Ficks clerked for U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Edward Jellen from 1990 to 1992. — Alexei Oreskovic IP FIRMS PICK NEW PARTNERS IN BAY AREA A trio of East Coast intellectual property firms have elected local attorneys to their partnership ranks.
