CHICAGO (March 15, 2010) — McDermott Will & Emery LLP is pleased to announce that the Firm’s intellectual property practice has been recognized as a leading U.S. intellectual property practice in Managing Intellectual Property’s recent World IP Survey (February and March 2010).
McDermott was listed among the top national firms in the categories of Bio Life Sciences, Patent Prosecution, Patent Contentious, Trade Mark Prosecution and Trade Mark Contentious work, practices for which the Firm has received similar recognition by Managing IP in prior years. Highlighting the growth of the Firm’s international team, McDermott is also now ranked at the national level for International Trade Commission (ITC) services. Additionally, McDermott is ranked among the top regional practices in the areas of Patent Prosecution services (Northeast, Midwest) and Patent Contentious work (Northeast, Midwest, West).
This latest recognition for the intellectual property practice follows on the heels of several recent honors the practice has received, including McDermott’s ranking as a “Go-To Law Firm” in Corporate Counsel’s 2010 reference guide, “In-House Law Departments at the Top 500 Companies.”
The World IP Survey, now in its 14th year of publication, is the most popular and comprehensive annual survey feature published by Managing IP magazine. The survey’s practice rankings are based on several months of interviews conducted with the firms eligible for the rankings, their regional and national clients, and their competitors. The survey editorial also tracks the major developments, cases and trends in the 70 major international jurisdictions covered in the publication.
