WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 10, 2010) — Trademark Insider, the 2009 Annual Report published by Corporation Service Company (May 2010), ranked McDermott Will & Emery LLP 16th among the Year End 2009 Top 100 Trademark Law Firms. In 2009, McDermott filed 503 applications with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
This outstanding ranking rounds out the Firm’s recent recognition by Managing Intellectual Property’s World IP Survey (February and March 2010) as a leading U.S. intellectual property practice, particularly in the areas Trademark Prosecution and Trademark Contentious work, among others.
“This past year has been a period of strong growth and increased integration between the intellectual property practice and the rest of the Firm. The Firm is delivering exceptional IP services to our clients, as is reflected in our continued solid practice rankings,” commented Mark Itri, head of the Firm’s IP Prosecution, Transactions & Strategy Practice Group.
The Year End 2009 Top 100 Trademark Law Firm rankings are determined by the number of USPTO applications submitted during the calendar year 2009 in which the firm is listed as the legal representative (correspondent). Each application is counted as one filing regardless of the application type.
