WilmerHale’s IP and Antitrust & Competition Practices were named among Law360’s IP Groups of 2010 and its Competition Groups of 2010. The Law360 Groups of the Year series honors only five firms per category, recognizing each firm for having played a role in the matters that made headlines and changed the legal landscape in the past year.
The IP Groups of 2010 include firms that “potentially influenced intellectual property jurisprudence for years to come through compelling arguments in cases that aimed at reforming the system as IP rights become an increasingly important asset for clients.” Meanwhile, Law360’s Competition Groups of 2010 have been deemed as the most notable of the year for “steering controversial transactions through merger reviews and recording big wins for major corporations in civil antitrust suits.”
Upon soliciting nominations for the Groups of 2010 series from more than 300 law firms in November 2010, Law360 received more than 400 submissions across 15 practice areas. A team of Law360 editors then narrowed down the list, picking only five firms in each practice area who earned the most outstanding achievements.
