Lando & Anastasi, LLP (L&A) is pleased to announce that the firm has been ranked for the eleventh consecutive year among some of the world’s largest and most prominent law firms in the IAM Patent 1000: The World’s Leading Patent Practitioners. The publication, one of the most extensive guides to leading patent professionals and firms around the world, praised L&A practitioners as “forward thinkers who look to secure the patents that will underpin the long-term growth and business development of their patrons.”
L&A is one of only a few firms, and the only mid-size IP boutique, to be ranked in all three practice areas: transactions, prosecution, and litigation. In addition to the firm rankings, four firm partners also were named by IAM to this year’s list for their individual practices:
- Peter C. Lando was selected for his prosecution and transactions practices. IAM noted, “[Peter] is the linchpin of an accomplished team,” and is “admired as one of the most commercially attuned patent lawyers in Boston – a city full of exceptional IP talent.”
- Keith F. Noe was included for his prosecution and practice, with IAM adding that he “takes the goals and stretch targets of his following to heart, along with their needs around budgeting; his sage counsel is built on these foundations and is perfectly targeted as a result.”
- Craig R. Smith was acknowledged for his litigation practice and as a “standout” for his “many litigation successes…in and outside of the courtroom.”
- Thomas M. Sullivan was selected for his individual prosecution practice this year. IAM remarked that Tom “devotes himself to achieving his clients’ objectives and bettering the legal community in Boston.”
