San Diego — Continuing to build on the firm’s dynamic Intellectual Property (IP) team, Rimon Law welcomes Dr. Dale Rieger as Partner in its San Diego Office. 

Dr. Rieger joins Rimon Law from Jones Day, where he was Partner.

“As we continue to build on our deep strength in the full range of IP law, we are happy to welcome Dale to Rimon. Dale's extensive experience in pharmaceutical patent representations puts him at the forefront of the most important issues in IP law. Dale has helped clients create the most valuable patent portfolios, and he is a sought-after attorney in handling pharma sector transactions,” said Michael Moradzadeh, Rimon’s CEO
