Haynes and Boone Ranks Highly in Patexia Analysis of IPR Success Rates


Patexia Inc., an intellectual property analytics company, gave Haynes and Boone, LLP high marks for its success rate in Inter Partes Review (IPR) proceedings.

In a report released Sept. 25, Patexia conducted a comparative analysis of how various law firms fared in their representations of one company, which filed 299 IPR petitions from July 1, 2014, to Sept. 1, 2019.

Among the law firms that the company used most often to handle these 299 matters, Haynes and Boone was by far the most successful, with a “performance score” nearly double that of the second-ranked firm, according to the Patexia analysis.

“Holding such a great performance in more than 30 cases is quite impressive for Haynes and Boone,” Patexia said in the report. “Haynes and Boone is among the best performing IPR firms.”

Earlier in the year, Patexia released its 2019 IPR Intelligence Report, which measured more than 8,100 IPR cases from July 1, 2014, through June 30, 2019. Patexia also analyzed about 5,000 unique patents and more than 80,000 unique claims challenged over the last five years to come up with the performance scores for all attorneys. In the report, Haynes and Boone and many of its lawyers ranked among the nation’s leaders in IPR proceedings.

“We are pleased to have so many lawyers rank among the nation’s top performers,” Partner David O’Brien, who leads the firm’s Patent Office Trials Practice Group, said about the 2019 IPR Intelligence Report. “The IPR rankings speak to the incredible breadth of talent and resources we have at the firm and the caliber of teams we field for clients.”
