“Kilpatrick Townsend is well-known for serving premier technology companies and organizations,” said Evan Nadel. “And the firm’s position of housing a leading class action practice and one of world’s top intellectual property departments drew me to Kilpatrick Townsend. I look forward to meeting the firm’s clients and my new colleagues across its 20 offices.”

Mr. Nadel, who is a frequent speaker at legal industry events, received his B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania and his J.D. from New York University School of Law. After law school, he clerked for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in New York.

“Evan’s outstanding reputation and history of client successes will enhance an already strong team,” added Tom Clyde, Kilpatrick Townsend Complex Commercial Litigation Team Co-Chair. “Adding an experienced, first-chair litigator will benefit existing and prospective clients in both the New York and California markets.”

This addition continues a recent expansion of the firm’s Complex Commercial Litigation Team. Earlier this month, Kilpatrick Townsend welcomed Michele Floyd, a partner, and Sam Hyams, an associate, to its San Francisco office.
