Cambridge, MA – Lando and Anastasi, LLP (L&A) today announced that the firm, and Louis Myers and Peter C. Lando, individually, have been selected for inclusion in International Asset Management (IAM) magazine's IAM Patent 1000: The World's Leading Patent Practitioners 2012.
The IAM Patent 1000 is a standalone publication that identifies the top patent practitioners, as well as leading patent law firms in 33 jurisdictions through the world, including 16 U.S. states. IAM's selection process included hundreds of interviews with in-house counsel and professionals in private practice, who were asked to provide candid feedback on individuals and firms with expertise in all major areas of patent law.
The publication includes a full profile of the firm, and notes that L&A "…produces an outstanding product at a reasonable cost and really represents great value for [the] money." Practitioners commenting on the firm also "highlight its exceptional responsiveness and accessibility as further important differentiators," and added that the L&A team "…shines in more complex matters such as re-examinations and reissues." Dr. Myers and Mr. Lando also are profiled in the magazine.
Described in the IAM Patent 1000 as a "top life sciences expert" and "trusted advisor to some of the most exciting venture-funded start-ups," Dr. Myers has more than 20 years of IP experience in biotechnology, chemistry and pharmaceuticals. He is a founder of L&A's life sciences practice, and he provides comprehensive strategic counseling to public and private companies of all sizes and stages of development. Dr. Myers also works with a broad spectrum of entities, including private equity firms, venture capital funds and ultra-high-net-worth individuals that invest in, or evaluate, life sciences companies and technologies.
Mr. Lando is a founding partner of Lando & Anastasi, LLP, whom commentators to the publication describe as "a real difference-maker," and "a creative, solutions-oriented lawyer who leverages intellectual property as a vehicle with which to further his clients' commercial objectives." Mr. Lando's extensive experience encompasses all chemical-related areas, and he is one of the country's leading IP attorneys on "clean" and "green" technologies. Mr. Lando has been involved in hundreds of due diligence investigations for acquisitions and divestitures of IP portfolios, involving everything from new businesses to companies valued a more than $1 billion.
