Michael Best is pleased to announce that Lucas Osborn has joined the firm’s Litigation practice group as of counsel in the Raleigh office. Osborn will focus his practice on matters concerning patent law and other intellectual property matters.
“The addition of Lucas has strengthened our team,” said Anthony Biller, Managing Partner of Michael Best’s Raleigh office. “North Carolina is quickly becoming one of the largest tech hubs in the country, and Lucas’ research and expertise in the patent space will enhance how we are serving clients in that realm.”
Osborn is currently an Associate Professor of Law in Campbell University’s Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law and will maintain this role while at Michael Best. He serves as the founder and director of Campbell Law School’s Intellectual Property Law Program and his most recent research examined how three-dimensional printing and other technology impacts the legal industry, chiefly intellectual property law. Prior to joining Campbell, Osborn was an attorney in the Intellectual Property practice group of Norton Rose Fulbright (formerly Fulbright & Jaworski), where his practice focused on patent litigation, licensing, and prosecution, as well as other intellectual property matters. He also clerked for the Honorable Kenneth M. Hoyt on the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas.
Osborn received his J.D. from Harvard Law School in 2004 and his B.S. from Texas A&M University in 2000.
