It is also of special significance that several of us have previous in-house legal experience. We share a common understanding of the legal, business, budgetary and process efficiency issues that clients face every day. And we pride ourselves on leveraging that corporate experience to help clients undertake new ventures and achieve their IP objectives.
We have been recognized as one of the top patent practices in the region (Chambers USA Business Lawyers Guide, 2004-2018). Several of our lawyers have been recognized in such publications as Chambers USA, Best Lawyers in America, and Ohio and Kentucky Super Lawyers as top practitioners in their field. Our practice is well integrated into the firm’s related practice areas, including the corporate and international practices, giving our clients the benefit of a broad perspective in the protection of their intellectual property assets.
