IP Litigation Hot List


The National Law Journal introduces its first Intellectual Property Hot List. These 20 firms excel in providing patent, copyright and trademark legal services. They have demonstrated creative strategies for litigation, patent prosecution, licensing and other transactional work. Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr, for instance, stood out from the crowd by scoring two major patent wins at the U.S. Supreme Court. Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton distinguished itself by developing a unique bankruptcy auction system for roughly 6,000 Nortel patents. Each firm has shown itself to be an innovator in applying legal principles to fast-changing technology

Litigation Boutiques Hot List


The National Law Journal ­inaugurates the Litigation Boutiques Hot List, featuring 10 small firms that take second place to no one in courtroom skill. These are the firms important clients turn to for state-of-the-art advocacy in bet-the-company cases. They are carving out specializations in products liability, international trade, intellectual property and other areas of the law. They also represent an avenue to practice high-end law on a more human scale than perhaps is offered by larger firms.
