The intellectual property law firm Panitch Schwarze Belisario & Nadel LLP is pleased to announce that it again has been named a “Best Law Firm” by U.S. News – Best Lawyers® for 2016, achieving national rankings in the practice areas of intellectual property litigation, trademark law, patent litigation and patent law.
The firm also achieved Tier 1 metropolitan rankings in the Philadelphia area for intellectual property litigation, patent litigation, patent law, and trademark law, as well as a metropolitan ranking in copyright law.
“It is always gratifying to be recognized, but since these rankings are derived from the evaluations of both clients and peers, they are particularly meaningful,” said partner Ronald L. Panitch. “I’m proud of the work our firm does every day on behalf of the people who rely upon us to advocate for their intellectual property interests.”
Best Law Firms rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in their field and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process.
The highest honor, a Tier 1 ranking, is based on a firm’s overall evaluation, which is derived from a combination of its clients’ impressive feedback, the regard that lawyers in other firms in the same practice area have for the firm, and information that the firm provided to Best Lawyers via a survey.
To be eligible for a Best Law Firm ranking, a firm must have at least one lawyer included in The Best Lawyers in America®. Attorneys are neither required nor allowed to pay a fee to be listed. For 2016, seven Panitch Schwarze attorneys were named to the Best Lawyers list: Ronald L. Panitch, William W. Schwarze, Martin G. Belisario, Alan S. Nadel, and John D. Simmons.
