In Memoriam
Jeffrey Sullivan
1970 - 2012

Partner, New York


NEW YORK, April 9, 2012 -- Our partner Jeffrey Sullivan died unexpectedly while visiting family in Miami on Saturday, April 7.

Jeffrey started with the firm in our New York office in January 1999 and became a partner on January 1, 2005. Jeffrey graduated from Georgetown University in 1992 with degrees in physics and history. He obtained his J.D. from The University of Texas School of Law in 1996, where he was elected to the Order of the Coif and served as associate editor of the Texas Law Review.

Jeffrey’s practice focused on the litigation of patent, trademark, trade secret, unfair competition and copyright disputes. He also handled all aspects of technology transactions, including due diligence, negotiations, counseling and evaluations of intellectual property rights.

During his time at the firm, Jeffrey played a key role in the 2003 launch of the successful IP Report, a monthly e-newsletter for clients interested in intellectual property trends. He later became editor and was responsible for articles that not only reached our clients but were published in trade publications such as IP Law and Technology Journal and IP Law360.

Jeffrey was a giving person, active with various charities, including the Ronald McDonald House of New York. A key member of our Intellectual Property group, a team player and a friend to many throughout the firm, Jeffrey will be greatly missed.
