Haynes and Boone in IAM: Go-To Firms for Getting Your IPR Petition Instituted

09/18/2015

Haynes and Boone and Wilmer, Cutler, Pickering, Hale & Dorr are the leading law firms when it comes to the institution of inter partes reviews (IPRs) at the USPTO, according to new analysis from Unified Patents. The research found that Haynes and Boone has the highest rate of institution for IPRs for its clients when measured by case, while Wilmer leads the way in having the highest proportion of client claim reviews instituted. Fish & Richardson and Sterne Kessler Goldstein & Fox have had the most cases instituted overall.

Unified filtered its findings to those law firms that have brought at least 40 IPRs (so that it includes firms with a significant track record at the Patent Trial and Appeal Board) and only took into account cases which have reached an institution decision on the merits as of 1st July. So currently pending cases are included, as are terminated cases and those settled post-institution.
