Both the Boston Business Journal and Silicon Valley Business Journal have ranked WilmerHale a Top Intellectual Property Firm, based on local attorney headcount. WilmerHale ranked as the largest IP firm in Massachusetts and within the top 10 in Silicon Valley.
The firm's IP practice is expanding, adding eight attorneys in the Boston office within the last year. As quoted by the Boston Business Journal, “Our IP practice has been very busy, with significant successes before trial and appellate courts, including the Supreme Court, and a successful and flourishing post-grant review practice, integrated with our IP counseling and prosecution practice,” said Partner and IP Department Chair Donald Steinberg. “To support this, we have grown the group.”
WilmerHale's Boston and Palo Alto offices serve a range of clients, from Fortune 500 companies to venture-backed startups. The firm is consistently honored among the best IP litigation practices in the country, earning rankings in Chambers, Law360 and The American Lawyer.
