SILICON VALLEY (July 11, 2007) —McDermott Will & Emery’s Intellectual Property, Media & Technology Department was recognized in IP Law & Business' annual patent litigation survey published in its July 2007 issue. McDermott ranked as one of the Top 10 busiest patent litigation firms in the United States, with a total of 33 new patent cases filed on behalf of clients in 2006, both plaintiff and defense. The cases included in IP Law & Business' survey were patent cases filed in federal district courts in 2006 and active as of February 1, 2007.
"This success is due in large part to our continued commitment to the growth and development of our IP practice. It further is a reflection of our commitment to providing our clients with the highest possible quality and proven results." said Terrence P. McMahon, head of the Firm's global IP, Media & Technology Department.
McDermott has completed another year as the go-to firm for IP litigation and has consistently ranked as one of the most active patent litigation firms in the U.S. for the past four years. This excellent recognition follows yet another significant accomplishment as McDermott was most recently recognized as the most active “general practice firm” before the International Trade Commission (ITC) in 2006 by IP Law & Business.
