LOS ANGELES-April 20, 2005- LAWFUEL – The Law News Network -The Los Angeles law firm of Russ, August & Kabat, which focuses on intellectual property, real property and business litigation and transactions, announced today that two more new lawyers have left national law firms to become part of the growing firm.

Irene Y. Lee, a Loyola University Law School graduate and formerly of McDermott Will & Emery, is a respected intellectual property lawyer, particularly in patent litigation. Irene earned a biochemistry degree from UCLA and is licensed to practice before the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

Julie A. Ryan, a graduate of Georgetown University Law Center and formerly of Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, focuses her practice on sophisticated national and international corporate and business transactions and compliance issues.

“We are, as always, thrilled to have lawyers as accomplished as Julie and Irene join Russ, August & Kabat,” said Larry Russ. “They enhance our successful business model of careful growth providing the resources to service our clients’ sophisticated matters within the personal and cost efficient structure of an independent, medium sized firm.”

Earlier this year, well-known veteran business and securities trial lawyer Steven Goldberg joined the firm.

Russ, August & Kabat, founded in 1982, provides clients with sophisticated legal services in defined practice areas as a powerful alternative to less cost effective traditional large firms. The firm’s real property practice encompasses all transactional, regulatory and litigation matters related to real property. The firm’s intellectual property practice encompasses all litigation, transactional, and prosecution matters related to obtaining and protecting intellectual property such as patent, trademark, copyright, trade secrets and other proprietary information. Russ, August & Kabat’s business litigation practice includes antitrust, unfair competition, securities and general and complex business litigation.

British MP George Galloway and his opponent the Daily Telegraph will leave no stone unturned to sort out what could be a spectacular libel case.
