Alston & Bird has been ranked among the top 5 national firms in patent litigation defense in a new report published by Lex Machina.
The study, “2015 Patent Litigation Year in Review,” ranks the firm No. 5 in representing defendants in the most new patent litigation last year, with 64 cases.
This ranking is the latest recognition of Alston & Bird’s leadership in IP Litigation. Last year, the firm was singled out by general counsel as a “powerhouse” in IP ligation in BTI Consulting’s Litigation Outlook 2016. The firm was also highlighted by Corporate Counsel magazine as one of the country’s top 10 patent litigation firms in 2015.
Lex Machina is a leading legal analytics data and software company. This is the third year that the organization has published the report, which reviews and summarizes major patent litigation trends of the year and the forces behind them.
