International Asset Management (IAM) magazine published the inaugural guide, IAM Global Leaders: Interviews with the Pinnacle of the Patent Law Profession, recognizing COJK attorneys Melissa A. Nowak and George E. Renzoni, Ph.D. for their work in intellectual property law in Washington state. Melissa Nowak is a member of the firm's life sciences and trademark practice groups, working with life science and biotechnology companies, universities, and non-profit research organizations to successfully obtain IP protection. George Renzoni is a co-managing member of COJK, serves on the firm's executive committee, and is head of its life sciences practice group. George represents a variety of clients in all phases of patent law, focusing his practice on the procurement of U.S. and foreign patents, patent portfolio strategy and development, technology licensing, and due diligence investigations, as well as providing opinions of patentability, infringement, validity, and freedom-to-practice.
IAM Global Leaders draws on its market-leading research projects, the IAM Patent 1000 and IAM Strategy 300, to identify the elite of the IP world in a single publication. The guide aims to spotlight legal professionals not only on the basis of their expertise and experience relating to creating, protecting, managing, transacting and enforcing critical patent rights, but also for their ability to innovate, inspire and exceed expectations to deliver for their clients.
