IAM Patent 1000 Recognizes McDermott for Legal Prowess, Creative Analysis and Holistic Business Approach


International law firm McDermott Will & Emery received superb rankings in this year’s IAM Patent 1000 for its legal prowess, creative analysis and holistic approach to the intellectual property landscape. The Intellectual Property Practice Group secured silver and bronze placements across the US and Germany this year and demonstrated deep bench strength with more than a dozen individual lawyer recommendations.

“Now more than ever, we have seen how challenging and competitive the IP landscape can be, and we know how important it is for business leaders to have insightful counsel with diverse perspectives,” said Nicole Jantzi, leader of McDermott’s Global Intellectual Property Practice. “That’s why we deliver actionable recommendations at every stage of the IP lifecycle. From the boardroom to the courtroom, we strive to partner with clients to mitigate risks, capitalize on opportunities and lead them to achieve their business goals.”

The IP practice is highly regarded in IAM for its business savvy, technical acumen and personal passion in patent litigation, patent transactions and prosecution, and life sciences. Across the US, clients note our practice for its “sophistication” and seek out our assistance on complex matters because of the ability to draw on multiple practice groups. McDermott patent litigators are known as “collaborative lawyers who always see the bigger commercial picture and allow it to drive litigation and trial tactics.” The team also “enjoys great credibility in the life sciences domain” and has proven to “hammer out favorable results in consequential litigations.” In Germany, cross-border litigation is known by IAM as the “meat and drink” to the Firm’s patent contingent, which “marries broad industry knowledge with rich IP expertise and a resolutely commercial outlook.”
