Managing Intellectual Property (MIP), a leading global legal ranking and referral guide, released its IP Stars rankings of U.S. trademark law firms for 2019. MIP recognized Kelly IP in Tier 1 of U.S. law firms nationally for both trademark litigation (1 of only 5 firms) and trademark prosecution (1 of only 3 firms). This is Kelly IP’s third consecutive Tier 1 national rating for trademark litigation and second consecutive Tier 1 national rating for trademark prosecution.
MIP also introduced in 2019 its rankings for select U.S. jurisdictions. For the Washington, DC area, Kelly IP received the highest ranking of “Highly Recommended” for both trademark litigation (1 of 5 firms) and trademark prosecution (1 of 6 firms).
Five Kelly IP partners—Dave Kelly, Rob Litowitz, Linda McLeod, Lynn Jordan, and Stephanie Bald—were individually recognized as “IP Stars” by MIP in its individual rankings of trademark lawyers for 2014-2018. The individual rankings for 2019 will be released soon.
IP Stars highlights the country’s leading intellectual property firms and lawyers and is based on surveys completed by peers and in-house counsel and on interviews with clients and leading in-house counsel. The 2019 rankings of U.S. trademark law firms are available at ipstars.com.
