Foley is pleased to announce that the San Diego Daily Transcript has named Amar Thakur, partner in the San Diego/Del Mar office, as a San Diego County Top Attorney for 2010 in the Intellectual Property Litigation practice category.
To compile its annual list, the San Diego Daily Transcript conducted a peer voting process to determine the best lawyers in private, corporate, academic and government practice in the main areas of law undertaken in San Diego County. Thakur was selected from more than 600 nominations to be among the finest in San Diego’s legal community.
Thakur focuses his practice on the development and enforcement of patent portfolios, and is considered a pioneer in the development of new alternative fee strategies for patent litigation. He has extensive trial experience in wireless and software related technology litigation matters, and has litigated IP proceedings against prominent high-tech companies such as Microsoft and Research in Motion.
This prestigious distinction marks the second year that Thakur has been honored as a San Diego County Top Attorney in IP Litigation, the first being in 2006. Amar’s ongoing dedication to his practice is also highlighted by his recognition as a San Diego Super Lawyer for Intellectual Property Litigation in 2009 and 2010.
