Back in October 2003, the editors of Legal Times assembled the paper’s first list of Leading Lawyers who focus on intellectual property law. We ended up with profiles of 15 impressive D.C.-area attorneys and a strong sense that we had uncovered only the tip of the iceberg. So when we decided to tackle IP specialists again, we also determined to cut our task in half. That’s why the report in this issue of Legal Times looks at that subset of IP attorneys known for their wise advice in copyright disputes and their expert handling of trademark matters. (Patent lawyers we saved for another day.) Even winnowing down Washington’s copyright and trademark bar to a mere 10 outstanding attorneys was no breeze. Fortunately we had help. First, the nominations from law firms and legal counsel came pouring in. Then freelance journalist Jenna Greene, who has been reporting on IP issues for many years, began making phone calls, sending e-mails, and generally seeking opinions — and the facts to back them up. This month’s Leading Lawyers is the second in our 2008 series. Nominations of government affairs specialists — both lawyers and nonlawyer lobbyists — are due May 27. Nominations for real estate attorneys are due July 8. To learn more about the Leading Lawyers series and to make nominations, click here.
