Jones Day hires ex-IP and cybercrime prosecutor
22 July 2013 | Dallas | Reporter: Carri Swann
Jones Day has announced the arrival of ex-Assistant US Attorney Richard ‘Jay’ Johnson in its Dallas office.

Johnson joined the firm on 22 July as of counsel.

As Assistant US Attorney, Johnson was coordinator for computer hacking and intellectual property issues in the Eastern District of Texas and a member of its national security team, and part of the US Justice Department's National Security Cyber Specialist Network. He also represented the US Attorney on the North Texas Crime Commission's Cyber Crime Committee.

As part of his role, Johnson also represented technology and pharmaceutical companies in patent prosecution actions, and advised on US Food and Drug Administration patent listings and international IP law compliance.

Prior to his government service, Johnson worked in private practice in Covington & Burling LLP in Washington DC.

Anthony Insogna, co-leader of Jones Day's IP Practice, expressed his support for the hire. "Our innovation clients are constantly challenged throughout the world by cyber crimes implicating their technology and trade secrets,” he said.

“[Johnson] is a leader in the field who not only brings real world experience but also brings the enforcement knowledge that will allow us to provide unique approaches to solving this problem.”

Pat Villareal, partner-in-charge at the Dallas office, commented: "Johnson adds an important new facet to the [firm’s] Texas IP practice.”

"I know a lot of clients who will be pleased to tap [his] deep understanding of the cyber crime threat. He's also a seasoned trial lawyer who will be welcomed by our busy IP litigation team."
