International law firm Dorsey & Whitney LLP was ranked Tier 1 (“highly recommended”) for its Intellectual Property practices in Colorado, Minnesota and Washington in the 2013 edition of Managing Intellectual Property Handbook. In addition to these top tier state rankings, Dorsey ranked among the top 35 law firms in the United States in Trademark Prosecution and among the top 55 law firms in the United States in Trademark Contentious.

Ten Dorsey partners representing six of Dorsey’s U.S. offices were recognized individually as” IP Stars” in the 2013 Managing Intellectual Property Handbook, including:

      • Elizabeth Buckingham (Minneapolis)
      • Sandra Edelman (New York)
      • Kimton Eng (Seattle and Palo Alto)
      • Patchen Haggerty (Seattle)
      • Stuart Hemphill (Minneapolis)

      • Lee Osman (Denver)
      • Lisa Osman (Denver)

The 2013 Managing Intellectual Property rankings are based on extensive, impartial research and interviews among thousands of IP practitioners carried out over six months starting in September last year. Managing Intellectual Property calls its 2013 research “the most comprehensive and authoritative survey of the IP legal market yet published.”

“This is wonderful recognition of our firm-wide strength in Intellectual Property,” said Dorsey & Whitney Managing Partner Ken Cutler. “It is a real honor for us as a firm to be recognized nationally, especially in key markets, and for the leaders of our IP practices to be singled out for star treatment. Each of them has the full strength of our world-wide IP team behind them.”
