Murphy & King Announces New Firm Name and Additions to Its Litigation and IP Groups

James Coyne King, co-founder and President of Hanify & King, has announced that the new name of the firm is Murphy & King, Professional Corporation.  The firm will continue to be led by King and by Harold B. Murphy, founder and director of the firm's Bankruptcy and Financial Restructuring Group.  King also announced that the firm has added three attorneys to its Litigation and Intellectual Property (IP) Groups, including Daniel J. Lyne, who has rejoined the firm as a shareholder.

Daniel J. Lyne, who practiced at the firm from 1987-2005, has rejoined the firm as a shareholder and co-leader of the firm's Commercial Litigation Department.   Lyne was previously a shareholder at the firm before becoming General Counsel at GSI Group, a publicly traded high technology company.  Most recently, Lyne was a partner at Bowditch & Dewey. His practice includes commercial business disputes involving mergers and acquisitions, IP licenses, professional malpractice, and corporate governance.  He also represents clients in a broad range of intellectual property disputes, including technology development, licensing, and patent royalty and software copyright disputes. 

"It's great to have Dan back at the firm.  His business and litigation experience will be tremendous assets to Murphy & King as we build upon the successes we have enjoyed over the past thirty plus years," said King.
