Intellectual Asset Management Again Ranks Gibbons Among World’s Leading Patent Professionals


June 11, 2018

Intellectual Asset Management (IAM) has again ranked Gibbons P.C. among The World’s Leading Patent Professionals.

David E. De Lorenzi, Chair of the Gibbons Intellectual Property Department, and George W. Johnston and George M. Gould, were also ranked individually among IAM’s leading patent practitioners. This is the eighth (8th) straight year that David De Lorenzi and the firm have been recognized by IAM.

Among other accolades, IAM recognized that “The buoyancy of the US economy has fueled an increase in corporate deal making and Gibbons, with its talent for consummating IP-rich transactions, finds itself in hot demand as a result.” And, “the firm is in equally fine fettle on the litigation front.”

To compile the IAM Patent 1000, the IAM team conducts extensive research over the course of five months with thousands of private practice attorneys based in dozens of countries, as well as the users of their services, in order to identify the practitioners and practices that are considered to excel at providing patent-related legal services.

David E. De Lorenzi was again selected by IAM for his patent litigation and transactional practice: “Commanding officer David De Lorenzi is the mastermind behind the success of a group that is hiring at a time when many competitors are standing pat or shedding weight. Clients hail De Lorenzi as a ‘common-sense litigator with superb control of the technical subject matter at issue in his cases,’ while highlighting his ‘excellent business sense’ as his chief USP. ‘Driving litigations in the most tactically clever ways, David consistently achieves brilliant results. He is extremely cost effective and, of the utmost importance, he listens to and respects the input given by in-house counsel – he brainstorms with his clients and takes feedback on board, all with a view to getting the best possible outcome.’”

Sources say George W. Johnston and George M. Gould are “‘seasoned experts who, having not lived their entire professional lives within legal private practice, understand the perspective of the clients they now serve.’ Johnston comes into his own advising on the most nuanced aspects of patent law and is an ace at interpreting ambiguous agreements, while Gould is an incredible visionary in the licensing field; both have previously served as chief patent counsel at Hoffmann-La Roche.”

No aspect of this advertisement has been approved by the Supreme Court of New Jersey.
