Partner Anthony Lupo Recognized as One of the “Go To” IP Attorneys on the East Coast for Television and Movie Studios
One of Only Two Firms to Earn Tier 1 Trademark, Copyright & Trade Secrets Ranking in Washington, DC
WASHINGTON, DC — Arent Fox LLP is pleased to announce that the firm’s Intellectual Property: Trademark, Copyright & Trade Secrets practice in Washington, DC has been honored with a Tier 1 ranking in the 2010 edition of Chambers USA, one of the premier directories in the legal profession. Arent Fox is one of only two law firms in the nation’s capital to achieve a Tier 1 ranking for its Intellectual Property Practice. Partner Anthony V. Lupo, who co-chairs the firm’s intellectual property practice, was singled out for individual recognition as well.
“Arent Fox is best known in the soft IP area although its comprehensive IP practice encompasses patent litigation and prosecution work as well. The firm's clients hail from a diverse range of industries with media and entertainment, computer, technology and fashion featuring most heavily. Examples include Google and LG Electronics,” writes Chambers USA.
“They have outstanding knowledge of trademarks and are very responsive and respectful of their clients' needs,” said one source quoted by Chambers when asked about Arent Fox’s IP group.
Anthony Lupo, who was individually recognized with a Tier 1 ranking in the area of IP: Trademark, Copyright & Trade Secrets, was described by Chambers USA as “one of the ‘go to’ intellectual property lawyers on the East Coast for television and movie studios, including representing Pixar, Discovery Channel, Travel Channel, WB, Turner, and Disney.”
The prestigious legal guide noted Mr. Lupo’s extensive experience in the field of post mortem publicity rights and represents the estates of legendary celebrities Steve McQueen, Maria Callas, The Marx Brothers and Albert Einstein.
Moreover, Chambers USA wrote, “Anthony’s intellectual property and e-commerce experience includes representing Italian fashion companies such as Diesel, Geox, and Benetton in all aspects of their U.S. distribution and licensing; representing computer and technology companies. Finally, Anthony has a great deal of experience in assisting clients in protecting and enforcing their portfolios on a global basis. In this regard, he has assisted a number of foreign governments in revising their intellectual property laws to comply with international IP treaties, including assisting the governments of Indonesia, Vietnam, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia.”
Published annually by London-based Chambers and Partners, Chambers USA is widely recognized for its objective, interview-based research and ranking system of attorneys and practice areas. Editors and researchers speak to a vast range of lawyers and clients before making their final decisions on which attorneys and practice groups to include in this prestigious legal guide. Greater weighting is given to the views of the clients. All interviews are conducted purely for research purposes and are entirely confidential.
