Kramer Levin adds two life sciences partners in New York

Brian Slater and Gregory Sephton have joined Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel in New York. They were previously at Fitzpatrick Cella Harper & Scinto

Sephton (bottom right) has been involved in litigating and trying patent cases for a number of technology leaders, including Emory University, Astra Zeneca, Novartis and Warner Chilcott.
