International law firm Dorsey & Whitney LLP announced today that Managing Intellectual Property has recognized nine attorneys in the Firm as 2015 IP Stars. The IP Stars highlights firms and individual attorneys’ strengths in products and industry areas, offering an unparalleled examination of the U.S. intellectual property market. The guide’s distinctive editorial structure features firms in every state including the District of Columbia.

Research for the entire publication was based on over 1,000 interviews and surveys completed by partners and law firms active in the U.S. In addition to breaking down their individual practices, partners were also able to indicate, through online votes, top practitioners in their respective states. Furthermore, Managing Intellectual Property talked to clients and leading in-house counsel to help inform the research process while also reviewing public information and media coverage.

Dorsey was nationally ranked in trademark prosecution and trademark contentious. In addition, Dorsey was highly recommended in Colorado, Minnesota and Washington and is largely known for its prosecution strength across trademark and patent law.

Following nine attorneys were recognized as 2015 IP Stars.
