The Legal 500 U.S. Again Recognizes David Kelly as a Leading Lawyer

07-Jun-2018 For the 11th consecutive year, Dave Kelly of Kelly IP was recognized as a Leading Lawyer in the United States by Legal 500 U.S.  Dave was named a Leading Lawyer, Legal 500's top category for individual lawyers, for both trademark litigation and non-contentious trademark matters. This highest honor was bestowed upon only 8-9 lawyers across the country in each category.  From 2009-2013, Dave was the only U.S. trademark lawyer to be named a Leading Lawyer in both categories, and for 2014-2018 Dave is just one of two Leading Lawyers named in both categories. 
 
Legal 500 announced the creation of its Hall of Fame in 2017, which “highlights individuals who have received constant praise by their clients for continued excellence . . . and who are at the pinnacle of the profession.” Starting with the United States, the criteria for entry was recognition by Legal 500 as one of the elite Leading Lawyers in a practice area for six consecutive years. Only 11 trademark lawyers were inducted to the Legal 500 Hall of Fame in 2017 in the categories of trademark litigation or trademark non-contentious. Dave Kelly was the only lawyer in the United States named to the Legal 500 Hall of Fame in both trademark categories.
