Managing Intellectual Property once again recognized Haynes and Boone, LLP as a nationally ranked patent and trademark law firm and listed 10 lawyers in its 2020 directory of the nation’s leading IP practitioners.

The publication ranks lawyers and firms based on research and market and client feedback about a range of criteria, including practitioners’ depth of experience and track records of wins and losses.

IP Stars ranked Haynes and Boone nationally for Patent Prosecution and Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) Litigation as well as Trademark Prosecution. Additionally, the firm was highly recommended in the Patent Prosecution, Trademark Prosecution, and Patent Contentious practice areas in Texas.

The following partners, spanning our Chicago, Dallas, New York and Orange County offices, were recognized as IP Stars: Purvi Patel Albers, Jeffrey Becker, David Bell, Randall Brown, Tom Chen, Andrew Ehmke, Erin Hennessy, David McCombs, Laura Beth Miller and Kenneth Parker.

Albers was again included in the Top 250 Women in IP list, which recognizes the leading female IP practitioners in private practice who have performed exceptionally for their clients and firms in the past year.

Scott Jarratt, Robert LeBlanc, Thuc Nguyen, Aaron Taggart, and Jason Whitney were also listed as Rising Stars in 2019.

“This recognition speaks to the incredible skill and depth of our firm’s nationwide IP practice,” Alan Herda, chair of the firm’s Intellectual Property Practice Group, said. “We are proud to have been prominently ranked in the 2020 directory.”
