Oblon Spivak is proud to announce that eleven firm partners have been named “IP Stars” by Managing Intellectual Property's IP Handbook.

In addition to the individual honorees listed above, Oblon Spivak was ranked nationally for its work in the areas of Patent Prosecution, Patent Contentious, Bio Life Sciences, Trademark Prosecution, Trademark Contentious and Copyright.

Managing IP writes, “Clients praise the firm's common sense approach to managing and building patent portfolios. Beyond pure prosecution work, Oblon is strongly positioned to become a primary player in post-grant review procedures at the USPTO. The recent additions of Greg Gardella from Irell & Manella and former USPTO administrative patent judge Lee Barrett provide further evidence of this capacity.”

MIP’s listing of the country's leading intellectual property attorneys is based on surveys and interviews with peers and in-house counsel.
