Patent Lawyer

The Association of Patent Law Firms (APLF) recently published the inaugural edition of The Patent Lawyer. The magazine is available online (PDF) and has the rare combination of interesting topics and excellent writing.

This edition includes articles on patenting issues related to nanotechnology inventions; reexamination strategies; as well as EU piracy issues. There is also a profile article on the firm, McDonnell Boehnen Hulbert & Berghoff LLP (MBHB). The four page article, entitled “A Path of Its Own: Chicago’s McDonnell Boehnen Rewrote the Management Rules,” chronicles MBHB’s eight year rise from a small start-up firm to a major player in intellectual property legal services. (pp. 10-13).
