Juristat's Top Patent Firms in the U.S. 2021 Rankings are out and Lerner David ranked #5 in allowance rate for Technology Center (“TC”) 3700. TC 3700 is where you’ll find patent applications relating to Mechanical Engineering, Manufacturing, and Products. Allowance rate is the number of allowed cases versus abandoned cases during a certain period (in this case during 2019). The analysis was conducted in December 2021, and analyzed public applications disposed between January 1, 2019, and December 31, 2019 to account for the 18-month publication delay. To qualify for inclusion, a firm must have filed a minimum of 100 applications in the tech center during that time period. Per Juristat, this ensures the firm has extensive experience in that technology center and provides an appropriate-sized dataset to evaluate performance metrics.
Lerner David has earned a spot in one or more technology-focused rankings for the third year in row. Juristat notes that while patent prosecution can seem like an unpredictable business, Lerner David is one of the firms that has demonstrated consistency year after year and recognizes this achievement.
