Making its first foray into the mountain West, Philadelphia-based law firm Fox Rothschild LLP has opened an office in Denver with three former Bryan Cave LLP attorneys.

Fox Rothschild’s Denver location — in Suite 975 of Tabor Center at 1200 17th Street — brings the 500-lawyer firm’s office count to 17 nationwide, it said Thursday.

Attorneys Neal S. Cohen, Scott R. Bialecki and Mark L. Yaskanin, formerly with the Denver office of St. Louis-based Bryan Cave, all joined Fox Rothschild as partners.

They will broaden Fox Rothschild’s patent prosecution and patent litigation capabilities in particular, bringing extensive experience in intellectual property, litigation and regulatory guidance to the firm, Fox Rothschild said in a statement.

“We have long been interested in creating a Fox presence in Denver, which is a hub of innovation, and we are especially pleased to be opening this office with the team of Neal, Scott and Mark,” Mark L. Silow, firmwide managing partner, said in the statement.

“Denver is experiencing dynamic growth in many business sectors, and that, combined with the recent announcement by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office that it would open a regional facility in the city, create tremendous opportunities for us and for our clients.”

Fox Rothschild has a nationwide team of more than 200 trial attorneys and a bench of IP services that includes more than 80 team members, many who possess doctoral degrees and other advanced training in various scientific and technical disciplines.

Cohen is an experienced trial attorney who handles litigation in the technology, probate, securities and financial services areas. He served as a member of the team that prepared the brief and oral argument in the Federal Circuit’s en banc rehearing of Phillips v. AWH, a significant patent claim construction case.

Bialecki is a registered patent attorney and former Federal Trade Commission attorney. He guides clients through regulatory and intellectual property issues involving such agencies as the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, FTC, National Advertising Review Council and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Also a registered patent attorney, as well as a registered professional engineer, Yaskanin helps clients build their intellectual property portfolio and maximize their IP assets by providing a range of comprehensive services related to patents, patent procurement, litigation support, transactional due diligence, trademarks and copyrights. He has handled patents involving medical devices and equipment, energy-related systems and improvements, engineered materials, and tools and other mechanical systems and devices.
