HLK success in IAM Patent 1000 2024

We are pleased to confirm that HLK has once again been recognised in the IAM Patent 1000 with 17 HLK practitioners recognised as leaders in their respective fields.

The IAM Patent 1000 is widely recognised to shine the spotlight on the firms and individuals that are deemed outstanding in the pivotal area of patent law.

Congratulations to Joanna Deas, Joe Lenthall, James Ward, Jana Crewett, Sandeep Basra, David Hammond, Greg Ward, Chris Hall, Alex Rogers, Frances Wilding, Caroline Day, Jamie Rowlands, George Tebbutt, Richard Kempner, Stuart Jackson, Simon Rees, and Daniel Chew.

These individuals have been recommended by IAM as outstanding patent professionals.

HLK was ranked gold in the European Patent Office jurisdiction for the second year in a row, silver in prosecution and bronze in litigation for the UK (England and Wales), and bronze in prosecution and nullity in Germany.

When recommending HLK, IAM’s research noted:

“One of the United Kingdom’s top patent filers and a regular presence at the EPO, Haseltine Lake Kempner is a strong choice for patent prosecution across all technical fields. The firm’s practitioners all pick up outstanding endorsements from patrons.”

And went on to say this about our team in Germany:

“Boasting technically savvy and strategic prosecution work, including a time-tested and well-regarded EPO offering, the firm’s Munich team is also stocked with leading, patent-focused attorneys at law for the hardest infringement proceedings.”
