Harness Dickey’s team of attorneys has a singular focus: intellectual property. We are frequently interviewed by media sources about topics and developments in IP law, and regularly share practical insights for managing IP risks in a variety of publications. Our patent and trademark attorneys also present at events or via webinars on the latest updates in IP Law.
With so many trademark and patent attorneys focused in the same area, we continually rank among the nation’s top IP firms in both objective polls measuring outcomes as well as subjective studies that assess expertise. We have been ranked among the Top Ten firms for obtaining U.S. utility patents for each of the past 12 years.
Our expertise in managing massive portfolios is evidenced by our ranking as the #2 firm representing the U.S. Patent Elite — the 100 companies with the largest active portfolios of granted, U.S. patents as reported by IAM Patent. Harness Dickey is proud to represent 44 of these companies and hold a separate #6 ranking for filing the most patent applications on their behalf.
Harness Dickey is honored to have earned inclusion in the Chambers® USA guide. Chambers describes the firm as “well versed in patent prosecution and enforcement” and “provides wide-ranging assistance with portfolio management, and in regard to IP licensing issues.” The description further commends the firm’s “expertise in litigious mandates including inter partes reviews and domain name disputes as well as IP transactional matters such as due diligence.”
Client testimonials supporting our Chambers ranking include one stating “I am extraordinarily pleased with the total effort, diligence and attention to detail, as well as the overall professionalism Harness Dickey present to me as a client.” Another client states that the firm is “very supportive of an in-house counsel’s role. It is a trusted and valuable partner in addressing and managing legal risk.”
Our intellectual property attorneys are well represented in the annual Michigan, Missouri and Texas Super Lawyers and Rising Stars, as well. Only the most respected attorneys receive this honor, with no more than 5% of attorneys in each state making the Super Lawyers list and no more than 2.5% earning Rising Star status.
We are also proud of the many accomplishments and accolades our individual attorneys have won through their dedication to serving clients. Awarding bodies include Managing Intellectual Property, IAM®, World Trademark Review®, Michigan Lawyers Weekly, Washington Business Journal®, St. Louis Small Business Monthly, and others.
