2016 Edition of IAM Patent 1000 Recognizes Wolf Greenfield

Wolf Greenfield has been recognized by the IAM Patent 1000 2016 – The World’s Leading Patent Professionals. The firm was highly recommended for patent prosecution, recommended for transactions, and listed in the bronze category for litigation. In addition, seven Wolf Greenfield attorneys were recognized individually.

Here’s what the IAM Patent 1000 2016 had to say about the firm:

A boom year at Wolf Greenfield saw the feted local boutique pick up Jeffrey Hsi from Locke Lord. In so doing, it lived up to its stated ambition to attract, maintain and develop the best. An inventor himself, Hsi knows how to secure watertight protection for assets. His hire increased the bench strength of what was already the largest New England-based firm devoted exclusively to IP law. Other highlights included litigation co-chair Michael Rader prevailing on four out of five counts of infringement for EMC Corporation. Before the trial, the ensemble also had five separate inter partes review petitions filed by opponent Zerto dismissed. Michael Albert’s knowledge of software, digital media and financial services proved instrumental to securing two summary judgments against TiVo on behalf of WPP. A persuasive orator, he has juries eating out of the palm of his hand. On the transactions side, Edward Gates has been laying the groundwork for a $4.2 billion deal for pharmaceuticals giant Shire. He has been joined in this endeavour by due diligence buff Patrick Waller, who shines in life sciences matters. President and managing partner Timothy Oyer ably counsels the likes of MIT in portfolio management and provides exemplary opinion work. All-star Jason Honeyman “does great work on the patent development side”. He is an adroit problem solver for whom no brief is too challenging.

Michael Albert was ranked in the bronze category for litigation; Ed Gates was highly recommended for transactions and prosecution; Jason Honeyman was recommended for transactions, highly recommended for prosecution, and ranked in the bronze category for litigation; Jeff Hsi was recommended for transactions; Tim Oyer was recommended for prosecution; Mike Rader was ranked in the silver category for litigation; and Patrick Waller was recommended for prosecution. Jason Honeyman was the only attorney in Massachusetts listed in all three areas.
