Michelman & Robinson, LLP Continues Its Firm-Wide Growth With Addition of Partner

April 17, 2017

Michelman & Robinson, LLP (“M&R”) is pleased to announce that Scott Lyon has joined the firm as a partner in its Orange County office.

A member of M&R’s Intellectual Property Practice Group, Mr. Lyon’s expertise in technology, cybersecurity, and data privacy is particularly relevant given today’s business climate. He is a litigator in both state and federal courts and transactional attorney, who represents a wide range of clients, from information technology and electronic banking companies to innovative start-ups.

Inside the courtroom, Mr. Lyon litigates on behalf of plaintiffs and defendants in complex commercial matters involving, among other things, copyright, telecommunications, and regulatory compliance, international commerce, trade secrets, licensing, and contract rights. Mr. Lyon guides clients through confidential audits, internal investigations, and regulatory investigations as well. Beyond litigation, Mr. Lyon is sought after to provide counsel on everything from corporate formation to the establishment of intellectual property rights.

Says Mona Z. Hanna, managing partner of M&R’s Orange County office and head of the firm’s Litigation Department: “Scott is a great addition to our existing IP department. He brings with him extraordinary capabilities that will not only serve our existing client base, but also will opens doors to exciting new business opportunities. I am delighted he is here.” Dana Kravetz, M&R’s managing partner and Chair of its Hospitality Industry Group adds, “Scott’s arrival at the firm marks a significant step in our ongoing growth – growth not just in terms of numbers, but in terms of proficiency in IP that is absolutely leading edge.” Mr. Lyon’s several certifications illustrate his vast knowledge of the technology, cybersecurity, and data privacy landscape (e.g., CompTIA A+) and the proficiency Mr. Kravetz refers to.

A graduate of Vanderbilt Law School, Mr. Lyon joins M&R from Sedgwick LLP. Regarding his addition to the firm’s ever-expanding team of outstanding legal professionals, Mr. Lyon states, "I am very excited to join Michelman & Robinson and look forward to assisting our clients with a myriad of cybersecurity and privacy-related legal services, from incident response planning and pre-breach preparedness to breach investigation and reporting, revising privacy policies and performing privacy impact assessments."
