Harness IP Listed in the Prestigious Chambers USA Guide for 2021

Harness IP is proud to be ranked among the top law firms for intellectual property in Michigan and Missouri. The annual rankings were announced by Chambers and Partners, publishers of the prestigious Chambers USA law firm ranking guide.

Chambers commends the firm’s “substantial prosecution work relating to patents and trademarks,” and describes the firm as a “well known IP boutique” with additional “expertise in litigious mandates including inter partes reviews and domain name disputes as well as IP transactional matters such as due diligence.”  The publication further recognizes the firm’s “wide-ranging assistance with portfolio management” and “IP licensing issues.”

Harness IP is also pleased to have received several client testimonials, including, “I couldn’t ask for a better relationship with a firm. The relationship we have is one I am looking for. It is a partnership rather than a contract, and they cultivate that relationship.” Another client stated, “The quality of their work product is routinely and reliably high. I find myself relying on them increasingly, because they do such excellent work.”

In addition, three firm attorneys were ranked for their legal knowledge and client service.

  • Lisabeth Coakley, a Principal in the firm’s Michigan office, is highlighted for her “well-established trademark practice, which sees her counsel clients on the filing and enforcement of their IP rights throughout the world.”
  • Matt Cutler, a Principal in the firm’s Missouri office, is recognized for “his extensive experience in IP litigation. He is particularly noted for his handling of inter partes reviews, as well as his strength in noncontentious mandates such as patent applications.”
  • Greg Meyer, also a Principal in the firm’s Missouri office, is once again named an “Up and Coming” attorney. Chambers cites Greg’s “growing reputation for his expertise in patent prosecution and litigation,” while another testimonial says he is “smart as a whip and really hardworking. He’s an excellent lawyer.”
