Dallas (August 10, 2011) – The global law firm of Thompson & Knight LLP is pleased to announce that Peter J. Corcoran, III has joined the Firm’s Intellectual Property (“IP”) Practice Group as an Associate in the Dallas office.

“Peter is a tremendous asset to our team, and we are thrilled to have him join us.

Mr. Corcoran received an L.L.M., with distinction, from the Georgetown University Law Center in 2007; a J.D. from the American University Washington College of Law in 2001; an M.S. in Electrical Engineering from The Johns Hopkins University in 1999; and a B.S. in Electrical Engineering, with honor, from the Florida Institute of Technology in 1995. He is admitted to practice in California and the District of Columbia, before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, and in numerous federal district and appellate courts. His Texas license is pending.

Prior to joining Thompson & Knight, Mr. Corcoran was an Associate at Kirkland & Ellis LLP in Los Angeles, California. In addition to his clerkships, Mr. Corcoran previously served as a Patent Examiner at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and currently serves as a Commander in the Engineering Duty Officer Corps of the U.S. Navy Reserves.
