Shook Hardy & Bacon adds two from Microsoft

Shook Hardy & Bacon has added partners Bill Harmon and John Mulgrew to its Seattle office


Harmon joined the firm on December 1. He served as an assistant general counsel at Microsoft within the patent litigation group.

During his 11-year tenure at Microsoft, Harmon also served as a leader in their digital crimes unit, global standards group, and intellectual property group.

Mulgrew joined the firm on October 1. He most recently served as an assistant general counsel and team leader for patent conflicts at Microsoft.

He served as IP and general counsel for all Microsoft Research organisations across Europe and the Middle East and handled all patent matters for subsidiaries in the region. Upon his return to the US, Mulgrew led a patent analysis team with broad responsibilities for developing IP strategies.

They join Bart Eppenauer, managing partner of Shook’s Seattle office and Microsoft’s former chief patent counsel.
