Banner Witcoff Leads the Way in Design Patent Procurement for 18th Consecutive Year

For the 18th year in a row, Banner Witcoff obtained more U.S. design patents than any other law firm in the country in 2020.

The firm obtained 1,136 U.S. design patents in 2020. According to the 2020 US Design Patent Toteboard and data from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, records show Banner Witcoff secured more design patents last year than the two closest firms combined.

With the 2020 numbers, Banner Witcoff has obtained more than 15,000 design patents since 1993. The firm has procured portfolios of 50 or more design patents for 25 different clients and design patent portfolios of 10 or more for 70 different clients.

“As an IP law firm, our main priority is to protect our clients’ intellectual property and these procurement numbers show that is exactly what we have been doing for the past 18 years,” said Banner Witcoff shareholder Robert S. Katz. “We are honored to hold this record and privileged to play a role in helping our clients — some of the most innovative companies in the world — protect their designs.”

In addition to the design patent record, in 2020, Banner Witcoff obtained over 1,500 utility patents and over 300 U.S trademark registrations, ranking the firm in the top 10 and top 15, respectively, among U.S. law firms.
