Polsinelli is recognized in two states and nine attorneys earn spots on the list of top patent talent around the world

Am Law 100 firm Polsinelli is pleased to announce recognition in the 2018 IAM Patent 1000, a guide that identifies the top patent professionals in key jurisdictions around the world. Polsinelli’s Intellectual Property Department earned regional rankings in two different states, while nine IP attorneys received individual rankings, five of whom were recognized for the first time this year.

“The IAM Patent 1000 is the premier ranking for IP attorneys in our industry and we are honored to have been recognized as a department in two regions in addition to the nine attorneys who achieved placement on the 2018 list,” said Intellectual Property Department Chair Pat Woolley. “Our team is dedicated to understanding our clients’ business goals and providing outstanding client service, and I think this recognition is a reflection of the hard work by our attorneys and their commitment to successful outcomes.” 

Polsinelli repeated its ranking in Illinois this year, while Colorado made the list for the first time. Polsinelli attorneys debuting on the IAM Patent 1000 include David Clough, Q. Todd Dickinson, Michael Dulin, Fabio Marino and John Posthumus, and attorneys returning to the list include Gary Hood, Gregory Durbin, S Wade Johnson and Timothy Worrall.

The IAM Patent 1000 is described as the definitive directory exclusively dedicated to identifying the world’s leading patent services providers. The extensive research process for this guide was conducted over several months by a team of full-time analysts, and involved more than 1,700 interviews with patent specialists across the globe. Legal and attorney firms and individual practitioners qualify for inclusion in the IAM Patent 1000 upon receiving sufficient positive feedback from market sources.

Polsinelli has one of the largest intellectual property departments in the nation, comprised of attorneys, patent agents and scientists who work with clients to solve complex IP issues related to the protection of their intellectual property. The department provides a broad range of services and capabilities for clients including biosimilars, Hatch-Waxman litigation, IP technology litigation, patent litigation and prosecution, post-grant proceedings, trade secrets litigation, trademark and copyright, to name a few.
