Bronze - Firms: prosecution
Despite the trials of the pandemic, IAM Patent 1000 debutant Beck Greener enjoyed a red-letter year in 2020. An ever-growing litany of global industry leaders seek it out for smart patent portfolio management that can withstand the test of time: indeed, several of its client relationships have now passed the 40-year mark. On the oppositions and appeals front, the group has enjoyed an enviable success rate of over 85% for two consecutive years and is regularly entrusted with some of the most complex issues on the market. Leading the practice is Avi Freeman, who also heads up the electronics, physics and mechanical engineering teams. He speaks the language of software clients and is a percipient adviser on unregistered designs issues. Chemistry ace Anna Hatt matches portfolio management acumen with skill in oppositions before the EPO; she is especially valued by clients from the Nordic region.
