Intellectual Property Practice was recommended as one of "Six Strong IP Law Firms" in an article published in the March issue of Washington Business Forward. The article, "Smart Moves on Intellectual Property," lists three IP boutique firms and three general practice law firms. The article addresses the benefits and sales pitch of general practice firms like McDermott arguing they can offer clients a broader range of services. Ray Lupo agreed commenting, "Patent and IP boutiques don't have some of the broader range of expertise that comes up in patent cases. We sell that we have both." McDermott was also mentioned as having 140 IP lawyers, as well as currently handling 60 patent infringement cases in federal courts and at the International Trade Commission.
