Goodwin Procter has boosted its IP and U.S. International Trade Commission practice in Washington, D.C., with the addition of four partners from Greenberg Traurig.

Mark Davis, the former chair of Greenberg‘s ITC practice, joined Goodwin Procter Monday. IP litigators PJ McCarthy, Ronald Pabis and Stephen Shahida also will be joining the firm as partners over the next several weeks.

Goodwin IP chair Douglas Kline said all four focus on the technology sector. “Mark, PJ, Ronald and Stephen join Goodwin as we continue to see strong demand for our services from technology clients,” he said in a written statement. “We are delighted to welcome them to the Goodwin partnership.”

Davis represents clients in IP and antitrust litigation in district courts, on appeal and at the ITC.

McCarthy litigates matters across technologies ranging from semiconductors to smartphones to cable/satellite broadcasting devices. He also advises startups on non-litigation IP matters.

Pabis represents tech companies across all phases of patent litigation and licensing disputes, and has experience in the networking, semiconductor, software and medical device fields.

Shahida’s litigation background includes cases involving graphics accelerator chips, massive storage devices, and semiconductor processes and packaging, among other technologies.

“The team is very excited to join Goodwin,” Davis said. “Innovation is part of the firm’s DNA and we look forward to contributing our particular skill sets to a cohesive, world-class team.”

A spokeswoman for Greenberg Traurig noted that the firm recently hired Scott Doyle from Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson to become chair of its ITC practice, and said the firm expects to announce additional hires to that team soon. “In the meantime, we wish Mark and his team well as they move forward over the coming weeks and months and thank them for their service to our firm’s clients,” she said.
