The IAM Patent 1000 identifies top patent practitioners in key jurisdictions around the globe.

"Peers describe IP specialist Marshall, Gerstein & Borun as ‘tremendously strong competition.’ The firm distinguishes itself by its innate understanding of, and appreciation for, the value of patents as a business asset."

"Pamela Cox is one of the foremost licensing experts both in the Midwest and nationally. She is a pre-eminent authority on university technology transfer and licensing acting for commercial and non-profit clients."

Patrick D. Ertel, Partner, was recommended for both licensing and prosecution.

"Leading strategist Patrick Ertel also draws wide praise in the licensing areas and in prosecution. ‘With his innovative thinking and down-to-earth approach, he really gets the job done.’"

Robert M. Gerstein, Partner, was recommended for licensing.

"Patent and trademark licensing expert Robert Gerstein wins much respect for his sound commercial judgment. A nuclear engineering graduate, he has first-rate technical credentials and is lauded for his deep-seated understanding of clients’ business and technologies."
