SEATTLE (June 28, 2010) – Perkins Coie is pleased to highlight that it was recognized by Corporate Counsel magazine for being one of the top 10 law firms with the most International Trade Commission cases in 2009.

Perkins Coie is a new addition to the list of firms recognized for their ITC work, but has quickly moved ahead of many firms who have been on the list for years. 

"We are pleased with the recognition Corporate Counsel has paid to our ITC work and our lawyers, but mostly we are grateful to our clients for trusting us to handle these important cases on their behalf," said Jim Coughlan, co-chair of the firm's ITC practice.

Perkins Coie's ITC practice has the experience and resources to handle Section 337 actions in a wide range of technical fields, including semiconductors, electronics, networking equipment, pharmaceuticals, bioengineering, and chemical sciences. In the last several years, the firm has gained substantial expertise in the intricacies of ITC law and procedure, adding a former ITC staff attorney and other partners who are regular players in this specialized arena. Our ITC practitioners, who include lawyers in Washington, D.C., the Midwest, the Pacific coast, as well as in Asia, regularly represent both complainants and respondents.

Corporate Counsel's methodology for compilation of the rankings was based off of three main groupings within all ITC cases: complaints, notices of appearances, and protective orders.  Firms that represented third-parties were not listed.

Perkins Coie is a leading international law firm that is known for providing high value, strategic solutions and extraordinary client service on matters vital to our clients’ success. With more than 1,000 lawyers in 19 offices across the United States and Asia, we provide a full array of corporate, commercial litigation, intellectual property and regulatory legal advice to a broad range of clients, including many of the world’s most innovative companies and industry leaders as well as public and not-for-profit organizations.
