"We are thrilled to finally be in our new office, after watching its development over the past two years," said Marvin Spivak, Oblon, Spivak's managing partner.

It certainly is exciting to start the new year here."

"Last year was another terrific year for the firm," said Spivak. "We were victorious in many important litigation matters and our firm argued the Festo case before the U.S. Supreme Court. This past year we were number one in terms of the filing of trademark applications and we have filed more than 5,000 new U.S. patent applications. We also increased our staff and billings significantly, as well as our litigation practice. We look forward to continued success in 2003."
