RALEIGH, NC —Smith Moore Leatherwood LLP has added to its intellectual property practice with the addition of Dave Krasnow to its Raleigh office. Krasnow, who brings more than 20 years of experience in handling patent matters, joins the firm from Kilpatrick Stockton.

"Smith Moore Leatherwood offers an outstanding and unique platform to me and my clients who seek innovative solutions during these challenging economic times," says Krasnow. "To best serve our clients, today's law firm must not only be substantively excellent, but must be exceedingly nimble and creative, especially in the intellectual property field."
