Jones Robb, PLLC is again named a leading patent prosecution law firm in the Washington, D.C. metro area in the IAM Patent 1000: The World’s Leading Patent Professionals in 2017 – a unique guide that identifies the top patent professionals in key jurisdictions around the globe. The IAM Patent 1000 remarks “[t]rusting in its patent protection work and recognising its value proposition, Fortune 500s are increasingly calling on Jones Robb.” Jones Robb is recognized for its skill with examiner interviews that “improves its success rate dramatically and enables it to obtain patents that meet business objectives within tight timeframes.” In addition, Jones Robb’s prosecution team “is quick to monitor and analyse new developments and announcements from the USPTO on Alice issues, for example, and then quickly implement appropriate changes to its examination approach.”
Firm founding and managing partner Susanne Jones again has been named as an IAM 1000 recommended individual, and is recognized as “a paragon of insight in the medical device industry.” Kevin Robb also has been recognized for his telecommunications practice, through which he “offers a first-class prep and pros service at a good price. He is efficient and flexible in addressing billing issues and you don’t get the hassles of high hourly rates you get from large general practice firms. You can rely on him like a member of your own IP team.”
The IAM Patent 1000 recognizes excellence in firms and individuals that practice patent law. The selection process includes interviews with more than 1,500 attorneys and in-house counsel and, according to IAM Patent 1000 research editor Nicholas Richardson, “Only those individuals identified by market sources for their exceptional skill sets and profound insights into patent matters feature in the IAM Patent 1000.” More information can be found here.
