WilmerHale was honored by Managing IP at its annual North America Awards Dinner held in Washington DC on March 18. The firm and Chair of its Appellate Practice Group, Seth Waxman, received the Supreme Court Milestone Case of the Year award for the successful representation of POM in POM Wonderful v. Coca-Cola.
The firm was also shortlisted—both nationally and in the northeast—as one of the Patent Contentious Firms of the Year, as well as among the Copyright Northeast Firms of the Year, and the Pharma IP Litigation Firms of the Year. In addition, three outstanding WilmerHale partners received individual recognition on the Managing IP shortlist: David Cavanaugh for the US PTAB Practitioner of the Year; Bill Lee for Massachusetts IP Litigator of the Year, and Seth Waxman for DC IP Litigator of the Year.
Managing IP's North America Awards are the conclusion of more than six months of analysis by its team of researchers, who conduct hundreds of interviews with IP practitioners and IP owners in North America. More information on these awards can be found by visiting the Managing IP site.
