Choate, Hall & Stewart's Intellectual Property Group Receives Top Rankings in Managing Intellectual Property's 2015 "IP Handbook"

Seven Attorneys Recognized as "IP Stars"

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - May 28, 2015) - Choate, Hall & Stewart LLP announced today that it received top national rankings in patent prosecution, patent litigation, and bio/life sciences in Managing Intellectual Property's (MIP) 2015 "IP Handbook," which is a guide to the world's leading intellectual property (IP) practices. The firm was also "Highly Recommended" in Massachusetts, which is the highest ranking a firm can attain.

Seven of Choate's partners were included in the "IP Stars" listing of the country's leading IP attorneys. These include Karen Copenhaver, Robert S. Frank Jr., Dr. William Haulbrook, Dr. Brenda Herschbach Jarrell, Dr. Charles Lyon, Eric Marandett, and Andrea Reid (Robidoux)

According to MIP, "Choate attorneys are considered client service-oriented and cost-effective with razor-sharp intellects and close attention to detail," while the firm itself is "revered for its client-centered approach to its work" for technology and life sciences companies as well as leading universities and other research institutions.

"The firm has established a stellar reputation for its success in managing the prosecution of global patent portfolios, developing lifecycle management strategies, handing down opinions regarding patent validity and infringement, and supporting and analyzing patentability and freedom-to-operate diligence. Praise for Choate runs high, particularly regarding its patent portfolio management, but the firm's capabilities with litigation are equally immense, and outside of the patent arena, attorneys are skilled when matters of trademark law are in play."

MIP is a leading international magazine for in-house IP counsel. Rankings for the IP Handbook are based on extensive research conducted among IP practitioners in more than 80 countries between September 2014 and January 2015. Firms are ranked in tiers in each category in each jurisdiction. Both the firm rankings and the list of "IP Stars" are based on recommendations from peers and clients.
