Oblon Ranked #1 as "Top Patent Firms for 2017"

March 1, 2018 – Firm News

Oblon is proud to announce that the firm has been ranked as the #1 Top Patent Law Firm for 2017 by IPWatchdog.

The top patent law firms’ rankings are based on the total number of U.S. utility patents that were issued in 2017 where the patent firms were listed on the front of the utility patents.

Our firm continues to set records for the most issued U.S. patents each year.  Our prosecution practice is privileged to work with loyal and stable clients, with whom we’ve developed strong relationships over the years.  We have also been successful at diversifying our client base in various regions of the World.  Our investments in hiring talented patent professionals with strong technical backgrounds in emerging technologies, in training an outstanding support staff, in purchasing new technologies, have been keys to our success.  Oblon’s Smart Prosecution program provides great efficiencies by reducing the total number of Office Actions in each patent application while maintaining quality. Our approach involves upfront resources in the preparation or revision of a patent application, with an eye toward prosecution and strong patent rights, in concert with holding face-to-face interviews with Examiners early in the prosecution. As a consequence of the success of these strategies, our clients continue to entrust us with a significant portion of their patent portfolios, which has in turn allowed us to consistently obtain more issued patents each year.

“Our prosecution practice is time-tested as providing the best value to all our clients and we are confident that we will continue to be one of the top patent firms in the US” said Philippe Signore, Managing Partner at Oblon.
