Thomson Reuters publishes the annual Super Lawyers list after collecting nominations from lawyers statewide who handle the same types of matters in various areas of law. The list’s editors and additional research determine the exclusive roster of Texas’ leading lawyers. Those recognized include less than 5 percent of Texas attorneys in private practice.
All five Texas Super Lawyers honorees from Heim, Payne & Chorush LLP were recognized in the 2023 edition of The Best Lawyers in America earlier this year based on their years of successful work for clients in complex intellectual property disputes and patent lawsuits.
The firm recently represented Ireland-based Arigna Technology Limited en route to a crucial ruling before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB). The PTAB ruling cleared the way for enforcement actions against car manufacturers based on their use of certain high voltage integrated circuit (HVIC) technology invented by Mitsubishi.
