Gibbons P.C. is proud to announce that two practices within its Intellectual Property Department have achieved national and metropolitan rankings in the 2012 edition of Best Lawyers®, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession. In addition, Department Chair David E. De Lorenzi has been individually ranked in three different IP categories.
The Department was singled out for national rankings in the categories of Patent Law (Tier 2) and Intellectual Property Litigation (Tier 3). In addition, the Intellectual Property Litigation practice was ranked in the first tier of the Newark, New Jersey metropolitan rankings, while the Patent Law practice achieved a second-tier ranking for Newark. Mr. De Lorenzi was ranked in three different categories: Intellectual Property Litigation, Patent Litigation, and Patent Law.
Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 41,000 leading attorneys cast almost 3.9 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
