| Adeel Akhtar

Knobbe Martens Olson & Bear LLP is pleased to announce that BTI Consulting has named San Francisco Managing Partner, Adeel Akhtar, a “Client Service All Star.” Akhtar is one of 30 intellectual property attorneys listed as being “at the top of their game” for delivering outstanding client service. The 2016 BTI “Client Service All-Stars” report honored 312 attorneys across all practice areas.

Client Service All-Stars were determined by the responses of more than 300 general counsel and legal decision-makers at large organizations with $1 billion or more in revenue. In order to be considered for the list, attorneys had to be singled out by corporate counsel for providing superior client service. BTI Consulting recognizes the traits of a Client Service All-Star as superior client focus, innovative thought leadership, unmatched business understanding, legal skills, outsized value and outstanding results.

As reported in IP Law360, BTI president and founder Michael Rynowecer said the 30 IP attorneys selected this year stood out because of their ability to provide IP strategy in a way that enhances a company’s ability to meet its goals for its technology, product line or revenue stream.

Akhtar’s practice includes strategic patent procurement, general counseling on infringement and licensing issues, pre-litigation studies, intellectual property due diligence studies and related negotiations for mergers and acquisitions. He also frequently conducts in-house seminars to assist clients in identifying and prioritizing patentable inventions.
