Banner Witcoff Celebrates 16 Consecutive Years of Record-Breaking Design Patents
CHICAGO – March 8, 2019 – For the last 16 years, Banner Witcoff has obtained more U.S. design patents than any other firm in the country. Moreover, the firm has procured 8,465 design patents in the past ten years, which is more than twice the number of its closest competitor.
“It is one of Banner Witcoff’s main priorities to protect our clients’ products and designs, and we have been proudly doing just that in record breaking numbers for the past 16 years,” said principal shareholder Robert S. Katz.
The firm prosecutes and enforces design patents in the U.S. and abroad, and has 22 design team specialists supporting its attorneys in this work.
Banner Witcoff continues to lead in procuring design patent portfolios. In addition to direct design filings around the world, the firm has filed hundreds of design registrations in the World Intellectual Property Office.
Banner Witcoff is working on rolling out its new brand with tagline “protecting IP, propelling business,” and the firm’s new website is expected to launch this summer with a strategic design patent focus.
