Am Law 100 firm Polsinelli’s Intellectual Property Department has earned a place in the 2019 IAM Patent 1000, a guide that identifies the top patent professionals in key jurisdictions and law firms around the world.

Polsinelli’s IP Department earned regional rankings in Colorado and Illinois for the Litigation and Prosecution categories, while nine IP attorneys received individual rankings.

“The IAM Patent 1000 is a reputable guide for our industry, and we are proud to be included again in the 2019 edition,” said Polsinelli Intellectual Property Department Chair Patrick Woolley. “As one of the largest IP practices in the country, this recognition demonstrates the intentional and focused effort our team dedicates on behalf of our patent and IP clients, and our commitment to obtaining successful outcomes.”

The IAM Patent 1000 is compiled through an extensive research process including more than 1,700 interviews with patent specialists around the world, as well as peer and client feedback. Individual attorneys qualify for a listing in the IAM Patent 1000 when they receive sufficient positive feedback from peers and clients with knowledge of their practice and the market within which they operate. Law firms earning a listing in the IAM Patent 1000 demonstrate a depth of expertise, market presence and superior level of work.

Polsinelli is ranked in two jurisdictions:

  • United States: Colorado (Litigation and Prosecution)
  • United States: Illinois (Litigation and Prosecution)

All nine Polsinelli attorneys included in the 2019 IAM Patent 1000 were also ranked in last year’s guide. They include:

  • David W. Clough, Ph.D. – Illinois (Luminaries)
  • Q. Todd Dickinson – D.C. Metro Area (Luminaries)
  • Michael P. Dulin – Colorado (Litigation)
  • Gregory P. Durbin – Colorado (Prosecution)
  • Gary E. Hood – Illinois (Litigation)
  • S. Wade Johnson – Colorado (Prosecution)
  • Fabio E. Marino – California (Litigation)
  • John R. Posthumus – Colorado (Litigation)
  • Timothy A. Worrall, Ph.D. – Colorado (Prosecution) 

Along with its ongoing growth, Polsinelli’s IP Department continues to earn national recognition similar to its inclusion in the IAM Patent 1000. The firm was recently named among the Top 10 Best Performing Law Firms Overall and is the No. 3 Top Performing Law Firm in High-Tech, according to Patexia’s Patent Prosecution Intelligence Report 2019 edition. Last year, Polsinelli ranked nationally in U.S. News & World Report’s 2018 “Best Law Firms” for Patent Law, Trademark Law and Litigation – Intellectual Property.
