Heim, Payne & Chorush Named to List of Best Law Firms in America
Firm earns repeat national recognition from US News/Best Lawyers in America for work in patent infringement, intellectual property litigation
HOUSTON – Heim, Payne & Chorush has again been named to the prestigious Best Law Firms in America listing by U.S. News & World Report and The Best Lawyers in America, one of the oldest and most respected legal listings in the industry.
The Houston-based litigation boutique earned top rankings nationally and in the Houston legal market for work in patent infringement and intellectual property litigation.
U.S. News and Best Lawyers researchers base their selections on voting by lawyers and responses from law firm clients. Clients are surveyed on firm expertise, responsiveness, business understanding, cost-effectiveness, civility and whether they would refer the firm to other clients. Recognition is then determined by the scores the firms receive.
The firm’s national reputation has followed a string of record verdicts, settlements and licensing agreements in litigation involving a wide range of patented technology. In addition to patent infringement litigation, their expertise includes patent-related appeals at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and the U.S. Supreme Court, as well as inter partes review proceedings at the U.S. Patent Trial and Appeal Board.
With a rare combination of courtroom talent and engineering and scientific backgrounds, Heim, Payne & Chorush lawyers have earned record settlements in patent-related antitrust litigation against pharmaceutical companies that abuse patent laws to maintain an anticompetitive advantage.
The full list of Best Law Firms will be published in the 12th edition of Best Law Firms. It is also available online at bestlawfirms.usnews.com.
