January 30, 2020 (Boston) – Partner Steven Bauer has been recognized as a 2020 IAM Global Leader for patent litigation. According to IAM, “IAM Global Leaders merit special attention not only because of their expertise and experience relating to creating, protecting, managing, transacting and enforcing critical patent rights, but also for their ability to innovate, inspire and go above and beyond to deliver for their clients.”
From the Firm's Boston office, Steve chairs Proskauer’s Patent Litigation Practice Group. He specializes in resolving technology and life sciences disputes related to complex patent, trade secret, trademark, copyright and licensing matters, either as an advocate for his client, or as a mediator or arbitrator at two adversaries’ request. According to Chambers, Mr. Bauer is one of only a handful of “Band One” patent litigators in New England.
To be an IAM Global Leader, an individual must be ranked in the gold tier of the IAM Patent 1000, the market-leading annual directory that identifies the top law firms and and individuals in the world’s most important patent jurisdictions. IAM’s research team gathers hundreds of written submissions from firms detailing their recent activities, as well as conducting face-to-face and telephone interviews, and exchanging correspondence over a four-month period, with patent lawyers, attorneys and their clients. The detailed data collected forms the basis of the rankings.
