Patent Practice Benchmark – The Top 20 Market Leaders
In 2017, Wood Herron & Evans was named as a Patent Practice Benchmark Top 20 Market Leader. The Patent Practice Benchmark is a behavioral data index used to predict and quantify risk. It tracks the 20 leading U.S patent practices (PPB 20™) that statistically display the least amount of risk based on a Quotia Score™. The PPB™ is composed of the top 20 US patent law firms that have the highest Quotia™ Patent Practice Score™.

To ensure that the PPB20 as a benchmark relies on statistically significant data, the PPB20 requires a minimum number of patent agents/attorneys, active portfolio size and payments activity. To be eligible for consideration in the PPB20, a patent practice must meet the following criteria in a calendar year:

  • Be based in the United States
  • Have a minimum of 13 Patent Agents/Attorneys registered and authorized to practice before the USPTO
  • Have a minimum of 3,100 published patent applications and patents in the Active Casefile histories
  • Have a minimum of 600 maintenance fee payments
  • Have a minimum Quotia score of 800
