“After being in Big Law for many years, I sought a technology-focused firm providing clients with personalized service and small client teams. I was attracted to MKW’s quality of work, its growth trajectory, its focus on technology and intellectual property, and most of all, its people, many with whom I have worked for years at Morrison & Forester,” said Mr. Radding, “I look forward to leveraging my experience and contributing to the firm’s array of outstanding legal services.”“When we started MKW, we sought to create an innovative firm with lawyers who shared that vision. Many of us worked successfully with Rory at a prior firm, and we are excited to welcome him and his depth of experience, which will provide significant value to the firm, our clients and the industries we serve,” said Michael Mauriel, co-founding partner at Mauriel Kapouytian Woods LLP.
