Workman Nydegger, an intellectual property law firm based in Salt Lake City, received a Top 10 ranking on “The Patent Scorecard 2011 – Law Firms,” an annual survey rating firms across the country against a variety of indicators measuring patent strength and quality.
Workman Nydegger’s No. 10 ranking was published along with the complete results of the survey in the April, 2011 issue of Intellectual Property Today.
“The Law Firm Patent Scorecard is a high-level evaluative tool for firms to gauge patent prosecution from a quality, technological strength and breadth of impact,” IPT’s editors write. “[The scorecard] is a rating of patent activity through the lens of patent representation.”
Workman Nydegger filed some 824 patents for the year ending Dec. 31, 2010 and earned high rankings under the scorecard’s Technology Strength, Current Impact, Science Linkage, Innovation Cycle Time metrics.
“We’re very proud of this achievement, especially since this particular ranking is unique in the sense that it gauges patent quality as opposed to most surveys, which typically look at the number of patents obtained or issued. This is a very significant recognition for our firm from a national perspective,” said Brent P. Lorimer, managing director of Workman Nydegger.
