Survey Cites Significant 2005 Trial Victories and Cases
ATLANTA (February 14) — Kilpatrick Stockton LLP announced today that its patent litigation practice was ranked in the top ten in the United States, and also recognized as “the fastest growing practice” in an IP Law360 survey of the 100 most frequently hired litigation practices.
“With a deep bench in both intellectual property and litigation, putting those lawyers together to handle complex patent disputes has been a natural evolution,” said Bill Brewster, Managing Partner of Kilpatrick Stockton. “The rapid expansion of our patent litigation practice is a by-product of years of serving clients in those areas, and we now have what is unquestionably one of the top practices in the country.”
Kilpatrick Stockton was ranked number nine in the survey of the leading patent litigation practices, measured by new cases taken on in 2005. The firm was recognized as “the firm with the fastest growing practice.” In fact, all other top ten firms in the survey experienced a drop in patent cases from 2004, except Kilpatrick Stockton, which enjoyed a “sharp rise in its caseload, doubling the amount of new lawsuits.”
Kilpatrick Stockton has more than 110 lawyers involved in Intellectual Property, including more than 50 registered patent attorneys and 45 full-time trademark and copyright specialists. The most recent international survey of trademark litigation practices ranked Kilpatrick Stockton in the top four in the country and the highest ranking trademark litigation team in a general practice firm.
Kilpatrick Stockton’s Patent Litigation practice is chaired by William H. Boice and Steven Gardner, and its IP Department is chaired by John S. Pratt.
