Weil’s IP Practices Receive Outstanding Recognition in 2018 IAM Patent 1000 Survey

Weil’s IP practices again earned national honors in the 2018 edition of IAM Patent 1000 – The World’s Leading Patent Practitioners. The publication recognized both the Firm’s Patent Litigation and Technology & IP Transactions practices as among the best in the United States, and granted Weil a total of eight firmwide rankings while awarding 10 lawyers a combined 11 individual recommendations. IAM Patent 1000 heralded Weil as “a big deal in the tech world and a repository of trust for innovators whether they are in a scrap with their competitors or looking to collaborate, share and invest.”

Weil’s Patent Litigation practice earned rankings nationally as well as in each of the primary regions in which it operates, including California, the DC Metro Area, New York and Texas. IAM Patent 1000 noted that Weil has a “redoubtable litigation group,” as evidenced by practice Co-Heads Brian Ferguson, Edward Reines, and Elizabeth Weiswasser and partners Anish Desai, Doug McClellan, and Garland Stephens receiving individual rankings.

Weil’s Technology & IP Transactions practice received a “highly recommended” ranking for Transactions in New York, while also earning recognition nationally and in California. IAM Patent 1000 commended Weil’s team for “having a granular understanding of the technology behind their deals and the business objectives of the parties to them, and they are not afraid to advise beyond the black letter law and take a view on something.” Four U.S. Technology & IP Transactions partners are recognized in the IAM Patent 1000, including practice Head Michael Epstein and partners Karen Ballack, Jeffrey Osterman and Charan Sandhu.
