In its 2020 rankings, IAM Patent 1000 names BoMc one of its top 16 patent prosecution firms in the country. In addition, for the second year in a row, the publication places BoMc in the topmost tier of leading patent firms in the DC Metro Area. BoMc is one of just five firms to be “Highly Recommended” for patent prosecution. IAM lauds BoMc as an “inclusive team with an even more diverse look,” reflected in “the sheer quality of work being produced. The set is driven by a powerful desire to master patent procurement and portfolio management, and provide the best counsel going.”

Several BoMc attorneys are named leading patent practioners. Kirsten Johnson is lauded for “her advice and top-notch product.” Roland McAndrews “gives frank and honest answers and personal attention to matters.” Les Bookoff is praised for his work on complex technologies for large multinational clients. Chris Agrawal is singled out for leading a flourishing Computer & Internet practice. Dinesh Melwani is recognized by clients as a “real champion of diversity” that “always comes prepared and knows what questions to ask to encourage productive conversations.” Moreover, Dinesh is once again recognized as a Recommended Individual for post-grant proceedings. He is one of just over 50 practitioners nationwide to garner this distinction.

IAM Patent 1000 is commonly regarded as the definitive ‘go-to’ resource for those seeking to identify world-class, private practice patent expertise and leading expert witnesses in the US. As with previous editions, to arrive at the 2020 rankings, IAM undertook an exhaustive qualitative research project to identify outstanding firms and individuals across multiple jurisdictions. When identifying the leading firms, factors such as depth of knowledge, market presence and the level of work on which they are typically instructed were all taken into account, as well as positive peer and client feedback.
