Arent Fox Intellectual Property Group Recognized as Top Practice by Media
IP Law & Business, a magazine written for the intellectual property community to provide comprehensive analysis of IP law and its interaction with business throughout the world, has identified Arent Fox as one of the Top 10 most active law firms litigating Section 337 claims before the International Trade Commission in 2007. The Top 10 ranking places Arent Fox above many long-established Section 337 litigating firms.
The article is the latest recognition of Arent Fox’s intellectual property practice by the legal media in recent months.
In May, Intellectual Property Today, a monthly periodical circulated throughout the world to in-house attorneys and practicing IP attorneys, ranked Arent Fox sixth in the publication's annual survey of Top Trademark Firms for 2007. The ranking – Arent Fox's highest ever – was based on the total number of US trademark registrations issued in 2007, where the firm is listed as the legal representative on the face of the registration. More than 325 law firms were included in the survey. Earlier in the year, Intellectual Property Today ranked Arent Fox as one of the top patent firms in the country based on the number of patent registrations issued in 2007 where the firm or individual is listed as the legal representative on the face of the registration.
Additionally, Trademark Insider, a quarterly publication that tracks the US trademark industry and its leading law firms, recently ranked Arent Fox as one of the Top 10 Law Firms of 2007 in its Annual Report. Trademark Insider ranked Arent Fox ninth in its list of the Top 200 Law Firms for 2007 and fifth among all US general practice firms in the total number of trademark applications filed in 2007. Arent Fox was also the No. 1 law firm in Washington, DC, where Arent Fox has its main office.
These rankings by IP Law & Business, Intellectual Property Today and Trademark Insider are tremendous testaments to the efforts Arent Fox has made in building a full-service intellectual property practice.
