Holland & Hart announced today the addition of patent and trademark Partner Loren R. Hulse to the firm’s Salt Lake City office. Hulse strengthens Holland & Hart’s Intellectual Property practice by bringing legal expertise in the creation, management, and protection of domestic and foreign patent and trademark portfolios to companies disrupting the life sciences, pharmaceutical, biotech, manufacturing, and medical device industries.
“Utah’s life sciences industry is one of the fastest growing markets in the U.S., with highly-successful innovations in genomics, pharmaceuticals, and medical device manufacturing by local technology companies,” said James Barnett, administrative partner of the firm’s Salt Lake City office. “Loren brings knowledge instrumental to assist companies in Utah and beyond with strategic IP advice essential to drive positive impacts to the state’s economy.”
With experience as former in-house intellectual property counsel for NPS Pharmaceuticals and as patent counsel for Ceramatec, Inc., Loren is well-versed in the IP needs of sophisticated life sciences companies and understands the business imperative for robust IP protection strategies to manage and develop patent and trademark portfolios aligned with company priorities.
“Loren is a strong addition to our highly-skilled, innovative patent team,” said Dan Glivar, the firm’s Intellectual Property practice group leader. “His experience in the life sciences industries and strength in chemical patents aligns with our firm’s goals to continue expanding service offerings in these rapidly-evolving areas.”
Prior to joining Holland & Hart, Loren was a partner at Stoel Rives, where he served as the co-leader of the firm’s Life Sciences industry group.
