PITTSBURGH, PA – Leech Tishman is pleased to announce its expansion to the West Coast with the opening of its California office. The office, located in Pasadena, California, will be led by Alan M. Kindred and Ivan Posey, two renowned intellectual property lawyers with decades of  experience in trademark, copyright and patent prosecution, intellectual property litigation, as well as domestic and international business and trade matters. Accordingly, Leech Tishman adds this Intellectual Property Practice Group to its growing list of service offerings.

Before Leech Tishman, Alan and Ivan co-founded Kindred Posey, an international and domestic consultancy and legal services firm, advising clients on intellectual property, litigation and international trade issues.

New Leech Tishman partner Ivan Posey said, “Alan and I could not be more pleased to join the team.
