Three partners from Pepper Hamilton have been designated IP Stars for 2017 by Managing Intellectual Property, a guide to the world’s leading IP firms and practitioners. William D. Belanger was named a Patent Star and Trademark Star. Gregory S. Bishop and Maia H. Harris were named Patent Stars.
Research for IP Stars covers 80 jurisdictions. Analysts review information from law firms, IP agencies and in-house counsel through surveys and interviews, and conduct independent research to produce the firm ranking tables and list of leading IP practitioners. There is no cost to participate in the research and no firm or individual has paid to be included in the ranking tables or list. Inclusion is based on merit and recommendation by peers and clients.
