This week Pearce IP celebrated its 5th birthday, and received glowing reviews and rankings for the firm, and for three of its individual patent professionals by IAM Patent 1000.
The firm received bronze rankings in the 2022 edition of IAM Patent 1000 for both patent litigation and patent prosecution. Additionally, each of the following team members are honoured for their legal prowess with individual rankings:
- CEO and Executive Naomi Pearce is Silver ranked for Patent Litigation;
- Special Counsel Jacinta Flattery-O’Brien PhD received the highest ranking possible for Patent Prosecution – that of Highly Recommended;
IAM was glowing in its review of the firm (our emphasis):
“Life sciences and pharmaceutical specialist boutique Pearce IP “is well placed to outcompete the much more expensive large law firms. All of the members are highly qualified, and almost all have technical qualifications.” The group has received glowing feedback from patrons: “I have always had the impression that their technical expertise goes beyond the expertise of other firms. There are other firms offering their services at lower costs, but Pearce IP can, in my opinion, justify higher costs due to the team’s expertise.” “Possibly the best and brightest team on the market”, it is “extremely responsive and helpful”. With consistent growth in its talent pool, the outfit is now home to a deep bench…”
Pearce IP’s CEO Naomi Pearce says:
“What the Pearce IP team has achieved in 5 years is awe inspiring, and this recognition by IAM Patent 1000 of the litigation and patent prosecution teams, and of six of its leading patent practitioners, is rightly deserved.
These rankings are a reflection of the calibre of the entire team and their dedication to their craft, as the firm continues to set the standard for the provision of legal and IP services in Australia.
I congratulate each of our prosecution and litigation professionals and support staff, and our individually ranked practitioners, for this very well deserved recognition and honour.”
