Michael Best & Friedrich LLP has continued its flurry of new hirings this week, expanding its intellectual property and cybersecurity practices with three lawyers from Smith Anderson, including a former Motorola engineer who will be managing partner at its Raleigh, North Carolina, office.
Michael Best announced Tuesday that Ed Roney will join the firm's IP practice and serve as the office's managing partner. Joseph Dickinson and Holly Benton will be part of the firm's privacy and cybersecurity practice as a partner and senior counsel, respectively. All three hail from the local firm Smith Anderson Blount Dorsett Mitchell & Jernigan LLP.
On Jan. 11, Michael Best announced that it was boosting its office in Chicago, and last year, the firm opened a new practice in Denver.
