Kelly IP Recognized as a Top National Trademark Firm by IP Stars

Managing Intellectual Property (MIP), a leading global legal ranking and referral guide, released its rankings of U.S. trademark law firms for 2017 in its IP Stars publication. MIP recognized Kelly IP in Tier 1 of U.S. law firms nationally for trademark litigation (1 of only 5 firms) and in its Tier 2 of firms for trademark prosecution (putting Kelly IP in the top 8 firms in the country).

All five Kelly IP partners—Dave Kelly, Rob Litowitz, Linda McLeod, Lynn Jordan, and Stephanie Bald—were previously recognized as “IP Stars” by MIP in its individual rankings of trademark lawyers for 2014, 2015, and 2016. The individual rankings for 2017 will be released in the next few months.

IP Stars highlights the country’s leading intellectual property firms and lawyers and is based on surveys completed by peers and in-house counsel and on interviews with clients and leading in-house counsel. The 2017 rankings of U.S. trademark law firms are available at
