NEW YORK—August 29, 2022—O’Melveny announced today that acclaimed life sciences patent litigator Gregory A. Morris has joined the firm’s New York office as a partner in its Intellectual Property & Technology Practice Group.

Morris, who holds a Ph.D. in organic chemistry, has extensive experience handling complex pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical technology patent litigation.
