WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 18, 2010) — Intellectual Property Today ranked McDermott Will & Emery LLP among the top 10 trademark firms in the annual Top Trademark Firms survey (May 2010). Firms are ranked according to the number of trademark registrations issued in 2009 where the firm is listed as the legal representative on the registration. In 2009 McDermott registered 557 trademarks, up 12.8 percent over 2008.
“Our trademark practice is committed to protecting our clients’ brand names, identities and reputations. This ranking, among others, reflects the exceptional work and service that our IP team provides to our clients,” said Joanne Ludovici-Lint, head of the Firm's global trademark prosecution practice.
The Intellectual Property Today ranking is the latest in string of 2010 recognitions for McDermott's trademark practice. Trademark Insider, the 2009 Annual Report published by Corporation Service Company (May 2010), ranked McDermott 16th among the Year End 2009 Top 100 Trademark Law Firms. In March 2010 Managing Intellectual Property’s World IP Survey recognized the Firm among the leading U.S. intellectual property practices (February and March 2010).
