A report in the November issue of IP Law & Business counts Faegre & Benson LLP among the top U.S. law firms protecting intellectual property for the world's 50 most innovative companies.
The "Who Protects Innovation in America 2007" report shows which firms are doing the most IP litigation work and patent prosecution for the world's top innovators. With clients like Google, Target and 3M, Faegre & Benson was ranked in the top 15 of the firms mentioned.
Company innovation rankings for the report are based on a Business Week-Boston Consulting Group survey of the 1,500 largest global corporations. To determine which firms were getting the most work, researchers looked at the top-ranked companies' IP litigation and patent-prosecution activity from January through September 2007.
