Two Harness IP Attorneys Named to 2018 Texas Super Lawyers List

Harness IP, one of the country’s largest intellectual property law firms, is pleased to announce that John Mockler and Gerald Welch are named to the 2018 list of Texas Super Lawyers.

This is the 11th year of Mockler being named to Super Lawyers’ list. As a registered patent attorney for more than two decades, he has worked with clients that range from startups to Fortune 500 companies. Whether big or small, Mockler’s clients call on him when they need full-service results – from preparing and prosecuting, to conducting infringement analyses, to licensing the issued patents, and beyond.

For Welch, this marks the 14th year that he is a Super Lawyers honoree. As the leader of the firm’s Frisco office, his practice focuses on serving clients in the medical device, healthcare, electrical, and energy production and delivery industries. Welch routinely performs due diligence investigations, clearance studies for introducing new products and handles post-issuance procedures before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board. He also counsels clients on the best strategies to monetize their intellectual property portfolios.

The honor, which is granted to only the most respected lawyers, includes no more than 5% of lawyers in each state. Nominations for Super Lawyers are based on a rigorous, three-step system of peer reviews and independent research to evaluate key indicators of professional success. Selections for both lists are made each year and announced on a state-by-state basis.
