Morgan Lewis has once again been ranked among the top 25 US patent prosecution firms by Juristat, a patent analytics firm based in St. Louis, Missouri.
Juristat’s ranking is the only ranking of US law firms that is based on the firms’ objective performance in matters before the US Patent and Trademark Office. The ranking considers both volume and performance and is based on a weighted average of four criteria: total number of applications filed, allowance rate, average number of office actions before allowance, and average time to allowance. The average number of office actions to allowance was considered for those applications disposed between July 1, 2014 and June 30, 2015, and the number of applications filed was based on the same time period.
Separately, Morgan Lewis ranked sixth in Juristat’s Top 20 Firms: Technology Centers 3600 & 3700 list, which covers tech centers in e-commerce and mechanical engineering. This ranking is based on the same criteria as the top 25 ranking above, and the factors weighed were based on applications disposed or filed between January 1, 2011 and December 31, 2015.
