Lerner David has been recognized internationally as a leading patent litigation boutique, and specifically, William Mentlik as a leading patent litigator in the world by IAM Patent Litigation 250 publication, a new guide to the world’s leading patent litigators from Intellectual Asset Management (IAM) magazine.
The excerpt from IAM magazine reads as follows.
This longstanding boutique has always maintained a tremendous reputation both within New Jersey and further afield. It has “handled a lot of high-profile cases over the years and is a force to be reckoned with among New Jersey-based firms”. Although the group’s work is diverse, key areas of strength include electronics and software, medical and mechanical devices and life sciences. The firm’s fantastic reputation for its patent prosecution and licensing practice has informed its approach to litigation: it is adept at finding business solutions in the early stages of the process. However, when matters do proceed to trial, the team can offer the experience and expertise that clients demand. Managing partner William Mentlik “connects well with the judge and jury and tells a good story”. He focuses on complex patent litigation, particularly within the pharmaceutical sector, under the Hatch-Waxman Act.
