In its fifth year being ranked by IAM Patent 1000, BoMc ascends to the highest 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 explains, “it is impossible to ignore the weight of positive reviews it garners year in, year out.” Clients say that the firm’s “attorneys understand how to implement comprehensive and well-thought-out IP strategies and execute on delivering large and valuable portfolios,” adding, “they prosecute patents that provide defensive postures for the long term; they also stake out offensive rights to future technologies that could be lucrative from a licensing perspective. They dedicate all the right resources to their clients and understand their innovations and businesses, which means you don’t have to constantly pay for attorneys to come up a steep learning curve.”

Once again, each BoMc partner is recognized as a leading patent professional, including newcomer to the list, Kirsten Johnson, which the publication describes as “fiercely committed to quality in patent prosecution [with] a lively strategic mind.” Clients say Les Bookoff “is a stellar attorney whose attention to detail is second to none.” Roland McAndrews is described as “a rock star patent attorney [who] knows the intricate details of the law and is an excellent strategist who ensures that optimum client-focused commercial outcomes are achieved.” Chris Agrawal “knows what it takes to drive IP value up and to the right.” Dinesh Melwani is described by clients as “awesome – an energetic team leader who has helped to grow one of the more dynamic recent IP specialty firms.” 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.
