IAM Patent 1000 Recognizes McDermott’s Global IP Practice for Top-Notch Work and Superior Quality


International law firm McDermott Will & Emery received outstanding rankings in this year’s IAM Patent 1000. The Firm’s Intellectual Property Practice Group earned silver and bronze placements across the US and Germany this year alongside 18 individual lawyer recommendations.

McDermott’s US-based IP group is highly regarded in this year’s rankings for its “strong technical backgrounds and notable patent drafting, prosecution and litigation skills.” The publication notes that the group “is in the vanguard of the action: in the past five years, it has handled some 210-plus district court cases, 100-plus PTAB proceedings and numerous ITC investigations. The work often has a cross-border component, for which international resources prove invaluable.”

The ranking describes the Firm as having “wide-ranging patent capabilities and a highly integrated approach to the practice.” The team is further noted for having “gifted scientists and lawyers in key innovation hubs around the country, putting it right at the heart of the action and within easy reach.”

Described as “’on the ball’ and with ‘top-notch legal knowledge’, the Firm’s German patent practitioners love nothing more than to sink their teeth into high-stakes litigation for innovators of all stripes, both domestic and multinational.”
