Venable partners Michael Gollin and Bill Russell were recognized in the inaugural edition of the IAM Patent 1000: The World’s Leading Patent Practitioners. The publication identifies individual and firm expertise in all major areas of patent law and practice. Covering over 30 jurisdictions and 16 US states, the results were based on over 800 individual interviews with patent attorneys and lawyers, as well as corporate counsel.

In the DC Metro area, Gollin was recommended for licensing and prosecution with the editorial recognizing him for “for his ability to get to grips with large IP portfolios and provide invaluable direction. He is equally popular among household names and start-ups in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors, understanding the diverse requirements and demands of each.”

Russell is recommended for licensing in New York with the IAM Patent 1000 editorial saying “through close interaction with the IP staff, he has developed strong expertise in IP licensing. With his combined corporate and IP knowledge, he adds value in the context of the purchase and sale of businesses.”
