Lanier Ford among top patent firms for 2008
The March 2009 edition of Intellectual Property Today has published a list of the top patent firms in the United States. Once again, Lanier Ford is the only Alabama-based law firm on the list. For 2008, the number of patents issued to clients of the firm increased by 26.3%, compared to the number issued to clients in 2007. The magazine’s list is based on the number of patents granted to clients of the law firm by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office during 2008.
