Smart & Biggar/Fetherstonhaugh repeats highest ranking in Managing Intellectual Property's 2013 patent survey
Smart & Biggar/Fetherstonhaugh has once again earned the top ranking as a Tier One firm in the areas of patent prosecution and patent contentious in Managing Intellectual Property's 2013 patent survey. Smart & Biggar/Fetherstonhaugh is one of only two Canadian firms to receive this prominent recognition.
Now in its 20th year, Managing Intellectual Property offers a unique perspective on IP practice based on the experiences of hundreds of clients and practitioners worldwide. Lawyers may not vote for themselves or any other member of their firm. The results are arranged geographically and then further divided into tiers, with firms in the top tier "regarded as the leaders in their market with the greatest expertise, experience and broadest coverage," according to the survey's editors.
