WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 9, 2012) — Intellectual Property Today (IP Today) has ranked McDermott Will & Emery LLP number 14 on its list of top trademark law firms in the United States in its annual "Top Trademark Firms" survey. The list, covering the year 2011, is comprised of 142 law firms and individuals, placing McDermott squarely in the top echelon of the nation's trademark firms.
Firms are ranked according to the number of U.S. trademark registrations issued in 2011 where the firm is listed as the legal representative on the registration. In 2011 McDermott registered 395 trademarks, up 5.6 percent over 2010.
The IP Today ranking comes on the heels of another top accolade recognizing McDermott’s breadth and depth of experience in handling complex trademark matters.
