Earlier this year, CorpCounsel contacted more than 300 law firms and asked them to provide us with a list of patent lawsuits they either filed on behalf of plaintiffs in federal district court in 2010 or were hired to defend against. To be considered for this survey, the cases in question had to be active as of February 1, 2011. We did not count cases before the International Trade Commission or appellate courts. Some firms listed multiple district court cases with the same plaintiff. If those cases involved highly similar technology or consolidated discovery, we counted them all as one. We did not rank firms who served as local counsel in the bulk of cases submitted. As such, two firms this year were excluded from our rankings: Texas-based Gillam Smith would have ranked eighth overall with 53 cases. Delaware-based Richards, Layton & Finger would have ranked ninth overall with 49 cases.

Lean Adviser Legal

Think Lean Daily Message

"To every extent possible, the improvement stage should include clients. They can improve their own internal processes. The entire issue of how GCs and their internal clients work together is an under considered topic. Then it goes further. Clients can improve and be better partners to their external law firms, and they can also highlight areas for external counsel to improve, and look for the commitment of law firms to do this. Law firms which do embrace improvement initiatives from clients lay foundations with them for the next project."
