Haynes Boone and Purvi Patel Albers Recognized as Industry Leaders in 2022 Managing IP Americas Awards

February 17, 2022

Managing Intellectual Property named Haynes and Boone, LLP among the leading law firms in a broad range of Trademark and Patent practice categories and shortlisted Partner Purvi Patel Albers as one of the nation’s leading Trademark Prosecution practitioners in 2022.


The winners will be named at the 17th-annual Managing IP Awards ceremony in New York in April.


Managing IP covers IP news and developments worldwide, and its awards program covers IP practice areas in more than 50 jurisdictions. Research analysts obtain information from thousands of firms, IP practitioners and their clients through interviews, email and online surveys. Before compiling the shortlists, researchers evaluate work data supplied by firms and, where applicable, reviewed publicly available information such as court and IP office records.


This is the latest recognition for Purvi, who is a member of the firm’s board of directors and a trusted adviser and counsel to Fortune 500 companies and high-growth ventures on the management of their valuable brand investments. She was featured in World IP Review’s 2021 list of “Influential Women in IP” and was chosen by Managing IP among the Top 250 Women in IP in 2021. She also was shortlisted in the 2021 Americas Awards as one of the nation’s top Trademark Prosecution practitioners.


In the 2022 Americas Awards, Managing IP shortlisted Haynes Boone as one of the Top 5 firms nationally in handling proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB).


Additionally, in the southern region of the U.S., Haynes Boone was named among the Top 5 firms in the following categories:


  • Patent Prosecution
  • Patent Contentious
  • Trademark Prosecution
  • Trademark Contentious
