IAM Patent Writes:
“One of the finest firms in New Jersey”, Lerner David demonstrates a complete command of patent practice. It manages over 84,000 patents and applications (more than half of those in the United States), treating prosecution not as a bolt-on service but an area in which it can drive the successful achievement of its clientele’s business objectives. Kelly Hwang and Orville Cockings are the names to note on the non-contentious side. Hwang, who has a patent to her name, is a pivotal member of the chemical and pharmaceutical teams, and is a Korean and Japanese speaker whose US patent law wisdom is a boon to many Asia-based clients. Cockings has engineering experience on his résumé and is steeped in the communications technology space; he also has worked as an in-house counsel. Versatile senior professionals Keith Gilman and Bruce Sales both excel at deploying IP assets for business gain and managing risk. Lerner David is also admired for its litigious firepower and a winning record stretching back decades. One of the most experienced lead counsels is Greg Gewirtz, who makes light work of complex court and inter partes review proceedings. He also does prosecution and has cultivated a rare level of technical expertise in this role: “Greg is a world-class litigator. He is bright, creative, and he gets great results.”
