McAndrews, Held & Malloy Recognized as a “Top Patent Firm”

CHICAGO, IL – April 27, 2015 – McAndrews, Held & Malloy was recognized in Intellectual Property Today’s annual listing of the 2015 “Top Patent Firms.” Firms are ranked according to the number of utility patents issued in 2014 where the firm, or a representative of the firm, is listed as the legal representative on the issued patent.

McAndrews recorded a nearly 20 percent jump in issued cases over the last year. The firm has seen a rapid expansion of prosecution work due in part to its ability to secure high-quality patents and provide superior client service and sound business strategies, while working within the parameters of clients’ budgets.

The firm is consistently recognized as a top patent prosecution firm in the United States. Previously, Intellectual Asset Management magazine ranked McAndrews #2 among all U.S. law firms securing the highest-quality patents across all industries.

McAndrews’ experience with a wide range of technologies such as mechanical systems, pharmaceutical compounds, complex electrical systems and medical devices, informs the firm’s approach to the development and management of industry-leading patent portfolios.

“Our attorneys practice every aspect of patent prosecution,” said McAndrews Shareholder and Firm President Robert A. Surrette. “While it’s always rewarding to be recognized and complimented for our work, our focus remains on providing the best possible service to our clients and their innovations.”
