Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe has announced today that it has appointed a second partner to its intellectual property practice.

E. Patrick Ellisen, who is based in the firm's Silicon Valley office, is the second addition to Orrick's Taiwan-focused IP practice this month.

On 3 August, Ya-Chiao Chang, the former co-founding partner of Kirkland & Ellis' Beijing office, joined Orrick.

Their appointment forms part of the firm's focus on representing Taiwanese companies in high-value US and global IP matters, including cross-border IP disputes.

"Pat has a longstanding reputation among Taiwanese companies for his IP litigation successes," said Mark Wine, co-chair of Orrick's patent practice.

Added Denise Mingrone, head of Orrick's IP practice: "Mark and I have known Pat and practiced with him earlier in our careers. We are excited to welcome another top practitioner to our Silicon Valley team and to continue growing our Taiwan practice."

Ellisen has advised on a range of IP disputes, including patent infringement actions in US District Courts and before the US International Trade Commission.
