Managing Intellectual Property named Kirkland & Ellis the “U.S. National Appellate Firm of the Year” at the annual Managing IP Americas Awards. In addition, the Firm was awarded two “Milestone Case” Awards in the U.S. – one for its representation of Converse in Converse, Inc. v. ITC; the other for its representation of WesternGeco (a subsidiary of Schlumberger) in WesternGeco L.L.C. v. ION Geophysical Corporation.
The IP Americas Awards reflect the best firms and attorneys within Managing Intellectual Property's IP Stars listings, covering more than 70 international jurisdictions. The award winners were chosen by the magazine's research team, based on extensive interviews with peers and clients.
