Chambers USA Recognizes The Gibbons IP Department as a Leading Practice
The 2011 edition of the Chambers USA Guide to America’s Leading Lawyers for Business features 10 Gibbons practice areas and 18 individual attorneys ranked in the top tiers. The firm’s Intellectual Property Department and two of its attorneys in this area were ranked among the leaders in the state.
Chambers annually rates the nation’s leading business lawyers and law firms through comprehensive interviews with top companies, attorneys, and business executives, plus extensive supplementary research. Chambers and client testimonials, excerpted from this year’s guide, include the following on the Gibbons Intellectual Property Department:
“This team owes its reputation to the exceptional depth of experienced practitioners it harbors, including former in-house counsel and a swelling number of attorneys from larger, New York IP teams. ‘The firm has invested heavily in building its IP practice and is well placed to handle work of any complexity. They are very good value for money and incredibly responsive.’”
The publication also ranked David E. De Lorenzi, Chair of the Intellectual Property Department, and Sheila F. McShane, a Director in the department, among the leaders in this practice area. Chambers stated:
“De Lorenzi offers ‘spot-on insight,’ notes one source, who adds that De Lorenzi knows ‘what buttons to push during negotiations.’”
“Sheila McShane earns commendation for her rapidly burgeoning level of experience in trademark and patent infringement lawsuits.”
