Arent Fox Ranked One of the Top 10 ITC Firms
Firm Ranks High in “IP Insider” Annual ITC Survey
Corporate Counsel’s “IP Insider” has named Arent Fox LLP as one of the Top 10 most active law firms litigating Section 337 claims before the International Trade Commission in 2010.
In naming Arent Fox one of the nation’s top ITC firms, Corporate Counsel writes “the sheer number” of new case before the ITC “has been exploding” and 2010 was “a blockbuster year. The number of new 337 investigations—the ITC designation for intellectual property disputes—filed last year hit an all-time high, jumping to 56 from 31 in 2009.”
Moreover, 2011 is on pace to set a new record. “In just the first five months of the year, the ITC opened 21 new 337 investigations,” Corporate Counsel reports.
To compile the data for the 2010 top law firm rankings, Corporate Counsel’s “IP Insider” used public information from the International Trade Commission. The ITC documents used included complaints, notices of appearance, and protective orders.
