“We are very proud of our firm’s ability to stay on top of the ever-changing laws in the world of patents, trademarks and copyrights,” said Louis Knobbe, founder. “The Western U.S. is an extremely competitive area for intellectual property law, and it is a true honor to have been named number one for the fifth consecutive year.”
