Lerner David Hits 1,000 Patents

The intellectual property law firm of Lerner, David, Littenberg, Krumholz & Mentlik, LLP is pleased to announce that the firm has been named one of the top intellectual property (IP) firms in the country by Intellectual Property Today™ magazine. Conducted annually, the survey findings are based on information reported by law firms as to the number of patents issued to clients during the year by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Lerner David, with 1,001 patents issued in 2012, was ranked number 33 out of 272 law firms, ahead of some of the country’s largest and most prominent law firms.

According to Keith Gilman, a partner, “this ranking is the result of our commitment to serving our clients in a concentrated and sophisticated manner. We are unique because we focus exclusively on intellectual property law. Our firm boasts a talented and technologically diverse group of 75 attorneys, as complemented by a staff of dedicated patent paralegals. The infrastructure at our firm is second to none among boutiques, no less general law firms with patent departments. Our very recent experience with the push of filings before the first to file provisions of the AIA became law on March 16th has once again confirmed the depth of our bench and ability to rise to any challenge.”

Lerner David, one of the premier IP law firms in the country, has concentrated on intellectual property law since 1969 including patent, trademark, unfair competition and copyright litigation, risk assessment and due diligence for new products and in mergers & acquisitions, licensing, freedom to operate opinions, portfolio management, procurement and strategic planning.
