Knobbe Martens Achieves Top Rankings in Managing IP’s Guide to Leading Firms - 12 Partners Recognized as IP Stars

Knobbe Martens again ranked as one of the top intellectual property law firms in the country by Managing Intellectual Property (Managing IP).

Managing IP’s recently published IP STARS, the leading specialist guide to IP firms and attorneys worldwide, which recognizes Knobbe Martens for its top-tier national Life Sciences and Patent Prosecution practices, as well as its leading Patent Contentious, PTAB Litigation, Trademark Contentious, and Trademark Prosecution practices.

In California, the firm is “highly recommended” in Patent Contentious, Patent Prosecution, Trademark Contentious, and Trademark Prosecution, and also recommended for Copyright and Related Rights. The firm’s IP practice is also recommended in Washington, where it has a Seattle office.

Additionally, 12 Knobbe Martens partners are  recognized in the guide as “IP Stars.”  The IP STAR litigators are Jon Gurka, Stephen Jensen, Christy Lea, Joseph Re, John Sganga, and William Zimmerman.  The IP STAR practitioners are Maria Anderson, Sabing Lee, Salima Merani, Ph.D., Susan Natland, Robert Roby, and Gerard von Hoffmann.

Susan Natland and Salima Merani, Ph.D., were also selected on MIP’s “Top 250 Women in IP” list. This list recognizes the leading female IP practitioners who have performed exceptionally for their clients and firms in the past year. The selection process also factors in activities in the IP community and corporate social responsibility initiatives.

The IP STARS survey, the most comprehensive analysis of its kind, covers 70 countries and ranks leading law firms by nation. The research looks at a firm’s strength in the practice area concerned and client outcomes delivered. IP Stars are selected based on available information, including market feedback and is a selective process.
