Patent Litigation Survey - Go Fish

The fourth annual survey of patent litigation powerhouses by IP Law & Business has ranked Kirkland & Ellis among the top three firms listed on both the "Fielders" list (firms that defended the most cases) and the "Batters" list (firms that brought the most cases) in 2003. The survey used CourtLink to collect docket information and then asked firms to supplement the data. In 2003, Kirkland defended 33 cases (placing it second) and brought 17 cases (placing it eighth), for an overall total of 50 cases. This is the third year in a row that Kirkland has appeared in both categories as a top firm.
