Foley has been named a top patent firm by Intellectual Property Today for the third consecutive year, one of only two general practice firms to be ranked in the top 10 in 2015. The complete rankings appeared in the magazine’s March 2015 issue, featuring 271 law firms and individuals ranked according to the number of utility patents issued in 2014.
The firm’s Intellectual Property Practice issued a total of 2,775 utility patents in 2014 to rank 8th in the 2015 listing, continuing its rise from 9th place in 2014 and 10th in 2013. In the 2015 listing, Foley ranked first in total plant patents and tied for third in design patents. Additionally, the group saw a 13.2% increase in the total number of patents issued in 2014 versus 2013 and a 27.9% increase over 2012.
This latest accolade is particularly impressive taken in the context of Foley's multidisciplinary IP practice and is the result of the collaborative efforts of the entire team, particularly among our three patent prosecution practice groups.
The team is dedicated to delivering innovative services to obtain, protect, and add value to its clients’ IP assets and is honored to receive continuing recognition of its efforts on their behalf.
