MVA IP team and attorneys recognized in IAM Patent 1000
Moore & Van Allen (MVA) has once again been recognized in the tenth edition of IAM Patent 1000: The World’s Leading Patent Professionals, a unique guide that identifies the top patent professionals in key jurisdictions around the globe. MVA members Jeffrey Gray, Chris Knors, Dick Lupo, Kevin Ransom, Todd Taylor, Henry Ward and Mark Wilson were listed as recommended attorneys in their respective practice areas.
The IAM Patent 1000 is a standalone publication that identifies individual and firm expertise in all major areas of patent law and practice. Through an extensive research process conducted by a team of highly qualified, full-time analysts, the publication identifies the top patent practitioners, as well as leading patent law and attorney firms, in 48 of the world’s most important jurisdictions and 18 US states. The complete list of North Carolina rankings can be seen in alphabetical order by firm/attorney name here.
The guide states, “Flexing high-calibre prosecution, portfolio management and transactional capabilities, Moore & Van Allen has earned the trust of a host of blue-chip companies looking to procure strong patent rights and put them to good use commercially. The IP group benefits from exceptional leadership provided by Kevin Ransom, a world-class prosecutor and strategist relied on by financial, manufacturing and high-technology multinationals. Chemistry PhD Chris Knors is cut from the same cloth and provides an equally essential service to medical and life sciences concerns. Joining them in the rankings for the first time this year, Jeffrey Gray has impressive credentials with his blend of mechanical and design engineering and business training. All three regularly engage in due diligence work and lean heavily into a stellar transactions practice which is primarily manned by Dick Lupo, Todd Taylor and Henry Ward. Lupo is a trusted ally in touch-and-go negotiations and a master at getting critical deals through. Taylor’s in-house experience is a boon to the group, as is his fine-grained understanding of data privacy and cybersecurity matters; while Ward has a flair for the fine print of licensing agreements. Moore & Van Allen also handles complex litigation with confidence and poise, putting Mark Wilson on to the field to call the right plays.”
