Chambers and Partners recognized Banner Witcoff as a top intellectual property law firm in its 2020 rankings of lawyers and law firms across the United States.
The firm received top rankings for patent prosecution in the District of Columbia and for intellectual property law in Illinois. In addition, attorneys Marc S. Cooperman and Christopher J. Renk earned state rankings in the Chambers USA 2020 guide, and Banner Witcoff president Chunhsi Andy Mu was featured as a noted practitioner.
The annual rankings are based on matters submitted by law firms and independent research conducted by Chambers that includes interviews with clients and industry sources.
Speaking of the firm, one source said: “The quality of the work is very high, the team is sophisticated with regard to patent prosecution and it knows the current state of matters.” A client told Chambers that Banner Witcoff “has a strong team and design practice,” adding that the firm “is good at looking at the big picture and new opportunities.”
The firm’s “depth and breadth of experience and knowledge,” as well as its “practicality and common-sense approach to litigation,” were also highlighted by another interviewee.
The 2020 guide noted that Banner Witcoff is a “[s]trong boutique known for advising a range of clients in sectors as varied as computer software and consumer products” and its “seasoned representation for inter partes reviews at the Patent Trial and Appeal Board.”
Banner Witcoff, the guide’s review added, has a “particular strength in the patent prosecution space, where it has undertaken notable actions in the field of design patents” and is “highly regarded for the drafting and prosecution of electrical and mechanical arts patent applications.
