Kelly IP partners Dave Kelly and Linda McLeod have been selected for inclusion in World Intellectual Property Review’s (WIPR) 2017 directory of “World IP Leaders” for the second straight year. WIPR launched its inaugural WIPR Leaders in 2016 as a comprehensive guide to the leading practitioners worldwide in the areas of trademarks and patents. For 2017, WIPR recognized 1,700 individuals worldwide “as the best and the brightest in IP private practice.”
To compile this list, WIPR contacted more than 12,000 individuals, both in-house counsel and private practice attorneys, for peer nominations. WIPR then researched and examined every nominated lawyer, including their “practice history, industry expertise and notable cases,” among other things, before arriving at the final list.
