International intellectual property boutique Smith Strong & Schlesinger has merged into Greenberg Traurig and joined lawyers it knows from behind-the-scenes work on the U.S. government’s China piracy case at the World Trade Organization. The Washington-based Smith Strong and Greenberg Traurig Washington lawyers officially work for the China Copyright Alliance and lobby U.S. government agencies, but the information they gather will help the U.S. trade representative make its piracy case against China. The alliance, which was formed in 2005 to press the government to bring a WTO case against China, is made up of six trade organizations representing sectors of the creative industry. In April, the U.S. trade representative initiated the WTO dispute settlement process by bringing its copyright and trade barrier disputes with the People’s Republic of China to the global body. Eric Smith joined Greenberg’s Washington office as a shareholder and Maria Strong and Michael Schlesinger joined as of counsel. “Their understanding of international copyright and trademark issues complements our global trade practice and enables us to offer additional capabilities to clients operating worldwide,” said James Bacchus, chairman Greenberg’s global trade practice group.
