Michael Heim Named Among World’s Top Intellectual Property Lawyers
Acclaimed intellectual property attorney Michael Heim of Houston’s Heim, Payne & Chorush, LLP, has earned a spot on the 2024 IAM Strategy 300 Global Leaders list, which recognizes “the world’s top private practice experts in the field of patents.”
Mr. Heim led a Heim, Payne & Chorush trial team to victory earlier this year with a $37.5 million patent infringement verdict for Texas-based Atlas Global Technologies Inc. against TP-Link Technologies Inc. of Shenzen, China.
Working alongside attorneys from Houston’s Susman Godfrey, Mr. Heim presented evidence of how Atlas Global’s patented technology was used without permission by TP-Link to make a series of products sold by Target, Costco, Office Depot, Amazon.com, and other retailers. The jury agreed by finding that TP-Link infringed eight different Atlas Global patents.
Mr. Heim was selected for the Global Leaders list based on independent interviews conducted by UK-based Law Business Research with hundreds of patent lawyers and their clients and IP industry professionals. Mr. Heim is among a select group of lawyers to earn multiple recommendations for expertise in intellectual property matters.
This summer, Mr. Heim claimed a spot on the companion 2023 IAM Patent 1000 ranking based on his expertise in intellectual property strategies, enforcement, and litigation. He has earned selections on both lists for several years, among other professional honors, including Texas Super Lawyers, The Best Lawyers in America, Lawdragon 500 Leading Litigators in America, and Chambers USA.
