Three Attorneys Join Armstrong Teasdale in New York, Boston and Las Vegas
Armstrong Teasdale announces the addition of three attorneys in offices nationwide – Partner Margaret Isa Butler in New York, Partner David Magee in Boston and Of Counsel James Henson in Las Vegas. They are among over 70 attorneys and staff who have joined the firm to-date in 2020.
“These additions strengthen our team and skillsets from coast to coast,” said Managing Partner David Braswell. “The corporate and intellectual property experience they bring to the firm and our clients bolsters our rapidly expanding platform, consistent with our growth strategy of adding high caliber talent in strategically desirable markets.”
Butler is primarily focused on mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and alternative investments. She regularly represents private equity fund managers, institutional investors, independent sponsors and family offices across the investment strategy spectrum. Butler has experience handling multimillion-dollar deals, as well as those ranging into the billions of dollars, and her experience also extends to private placements, real estate development projects and limited partner investments, debt and equity co-investments and direct investments. She has also advised clients on conflicts and other governance issues for funds, corporations and other entities. Further, her substantial deal advisory and implementation experience allows her to execute sophisticated private equity and hedge fund transactions, design custom structures for investments, and engage in all aspects of mergers and acquisitions, including public company takeover defense and shareholder activism.
Magee represents technology and other industry clients in patent litigation and licensing, as well as counseling on intellectual property matters and commercial disputes. He has successfully litigated patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret and other intellectual property and commercial cases before the International Trade Commission (ITC), Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) and U.S. District Courts, as well as numerous mediation and arbitration panels. His background as an engineer at a top engineering firm lends to his ability to quickly distill complex technical information, and drives his successful representation of clients in complex, multimillion-dollar disputes.
Henson focuses on advising clients in patent and trademark matters. Registered to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), his practice centers on evaluating and protecting corporate intellectual property assets, including intellectual property due diligence, patent acquisition, and a variety of other strategy and counseling services. Henson’s experience spans a wide range of industries and technologies, including power management and conservation, computer clock control, synchronization of plural processors, aerospace systems, satellite transceivers, database structures, streaming media, casino gaming, power converters, electrochemistry and geochemistry, environmental engineering, including hydrology and hydrogeology, and solar energy collection and storage.
