Juristat Names Fenwick Top 3 Patent Firm for Patent Expertise and Prowess

Mountain View, CA (March 1, 2017) – Fenwick & West is pleased to announce that Juristat has named it one of the top 3 patent firms in the United States on its 2017 Top 100 Patent Firms list.

Juristat's list is the only ranking of U.S. patent prosecution firms based on objective measurements of firm performance. Their ranking considers both volume and performance, and is based on four criteria, including total number of applications filed; allowance rate; average number of office actions before allowance; and average time to allowance.

With advanced technical degrees and business experience in disciplines such as electrical engineering, computer science, chemistry, and molecular biology, Fenwick’s patent practitioners have served innovative companies and research entities worldwide for over three decades, ranging from software to semiconductors and biotechnology to business methods. The firm’s patent practice encompasses patent prosecution, strategic patent counseling, post-grant proceedings before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and support for U.S. District Court and International Trade Commission patent litigation.

Fenwick supports the patent portfolios of some of the most well-known, cutting-edge companies in the world, including high tech companies such as Facebook, Twitter, LG Display, Synopsys, Lattice Semiconductor, Airbnb, Silicon Image, GoPro and Dropbox and life sciences companies like Alnylam Pharmaceuticals, Juno Therapeutics, Dermira and Calico Life Sciences.

Fenwick’s patent practice continues to be honored for its excellence. In 2016, Managing Intellectual Property recognized Fenwick among the United States’ top firms for patent prosecution, as did The Legal 500. The firm also receives regional recognition: last year Chambers USA ranked the firm among the California’s leading patent prosecution firms. In addition, Lake Whillans, which publishes the Life Sciences Law Firm Index, named Fenwick among the top five life sciences patent law firms in the United States. Fenwick also secured three of the 10 patents IPFolio highlighted as launching billion-dollar empires, the most of any law firm.
