CHICAGO (April 2, 2008) — McDermott Will & Emery's Intellectual Property, Media & Technology Department is ranked as a leading U.S. firm for trademark contentious work and trademark prosecution and counseling in Managing Intellectual Property's recent World IP Survey (March 2008).
"This recognition again confirms the strength of our full-service trademark practice, and recognizes McDermott's standing among the top global IP practices," said Robert Zelnick, head of the Firm’s Trademark Practice Group.
The World IP Survey ranks the leading IP firms across the world in trademark contentious work and trademark prosecution and counseling. The results of the survey are based on interviews with hundreds of practitioners and in-house counsel worldwide and reveal which firms are rated by their peers for the strength of their expertise and the depth of their ability to service clients. The rankings were the result of interviews and research conducted between September 2007 and January 2008 across 65 jurisdictions.
In 2007, McDermott was recognized in Intellectual Property Today's "Top Trademark Firms" survey. The Firm's Trademark Practice Group was ranked among the top 10 most active trademark firms. The list is based on the number of trademark registrations issued by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in the previous calendar year. McDermott's trademark enforcement practice has likewise been ranked among the top 10 most active trademark litigation firms.
