Willkie’s Intellectual Property group has once again been recognized by IAM Patent 1000, an annual guide to the outstanding patent firms and practitioners around the world.

The 2023 guide ranked Willkie in both Washington, DC, and Chicago for patent litigation prowess, and highlighted the trial experience, deep legal and technical skill, and client-focused approach of leading attorneys across Willkie’s patent practice.  

“For clients seeking support in complex IP litigation, Willkie Farr & Gallagher is an excellent choice,” IAM noted. “Many of its practitioners have technical backgrounds in life sciences and engineering, plus a wealth of experience in courts across the country.”

The following six Willkie partners were recognized among the top patent litigators in their respective jurisdictions: 

  • Michael Babbitt, partner in the Intellectual Property and Litigation Departments in Chicago. 
  • Sara Tonnies Horton, Co-Chair of the IP Litigation Practice Group in Chicago.
  • Michael Johnson, partner in the Intellectual Property Department in New York.
  • Stephen Marshall, partner in the Intellectual Property Department in Washington, DC.
  • Craig C. Martin, Chairman, Midwest, and partner in the Litigation Department in Chicago.
  • Indranil “Indy” Mukerji, Chair of the Technology Patent Litigation Practice Group in Washington, DC.
