Welcome to the IAM Patent 1000 2015 – The World’s Leading Patent Professionals, the fourth edition of our unique guide to leading private practice patent professionals and firms in the world’s key jurisdictions. There is no other publication like the IAM Patent 1000 - a one-stop resource exclusively focused on identifying best-in-class patent prosecution, licensing and litigation practitioners on a global basis, as well as expert witnesses in the United States.
Over the course of five months, our dedicated IAM research team based in London and Hong Kong conducted detailed interviews with hundreds of private practice lawyers and attorneys, as well as the users of their services, in countries across the world, in order to identify the practitioners and practices that are instructed by clients when only the best will do. In the United States, we also asked interviewees to name the expert witnesses they turn to when they need world-class input on both damages and technical issues. The firms and individuals listed on the following pages are the results of that research.
All those listed in the IAM Patent 1000 are included because we received substantial positive feedback about them from multiple sources. We do not claim that we have managed to find every top name in every jurisdiction covered; but we are confident that we have included the vast majority, and that everybody who is listed fully merits their inclusion. A detailed methodology which explains the research process, as well as how our researchers decided who should finally be listed, can be found here.
In addition to the listings and editorial, you will find further biographical information on some of the individuals featured at the end of each country section, and on some of the selected firms at the end of each regional chapter. All those who were selected for inclusion in the IAM Patent 1000 were offered the opportunity to publish this information for a fee – some decided that they wished to, while others declined. Inclusion in the editorial is in no way linked to this: the research was conducted entirely independent of any commercial considerations.

The Austrian market has been in a state of flux over the past 12 months, as new boutiques and shifting allegiances between some major players have challenged the dominant positions of the old guard. Legislative changes which came into force at the beginning of 2014 saw the ordinary courts assume jurisdiction over all remedial legal, technical and nullity proceedings involving Austrian Patent Office decisions. With no real yardstick against which to measure the efficacy of the courts and the quality of their rulings, several practitioners have been quick to raise questions about the new system. After several years of anxious anticipation, the decision to open a local division of ...
