MINNEAPOLIS (November 2010) - Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi L.L.P. is pleased to announce it has ranked prominently in the 2010 Corporate Counsel Patent Litigation Survey. The firm ranks ninth on the list of "Top 10 Plaintiff's Firms" and is in the 26th spot on the list of "The Busiest Firms Overall." Corporate Counsel is an ALM publication.
"This list confirms that our patent work on behalf of plaintiff's is busier than ever, and we are pleased to be acknowledged in this area," said Ronald J. Schutz, who leads the firm's Intellectual Property Litigation Group.
Earlier this year, Corporate Counsel contacted more than 300 law firms and asked them to provide the publication with a list of patent lawsuits they either filed on behalf of plaintiffs in federal district court in 2009 or were hired to defend against. To be considered for this survey, the cases in question had to be active as of February 1, 2010.
Being named to the list or receiving the award is not intended and should not be viewed as comparative to other lawyers or to create an expectation about results that might be achieved in a future matter.
