The law firm Morrison & Foerster has been ranked by general counsel and in-house litigation counsel as a “powerhouse” in intellectual property litigation, according to the latest survey by the BTI Consulting Group.
BTI also ranked Morrison & Foerster, which has an office in San Diego, as a “standout” law firm in securities and finance litigation and placed the firm on the “honor roll” for complex commercial litigation and complex employment litigation.
The 2014 BTI Litigation Outlook: Changes, Trends and Opportunities for Law Firms survey also named Morrison & Foerster one of the “most feared litigation law firms,” a firm that in-house counsel would see as mounting a significant challenge as lead opposing counsel in a litigation case.
“MoFo’s strong performance reflects our ability to win trials in significant commercial and IP disputes,” said Arturo González, co-chair of Morrison & Foerster’s litigation department. “In the past 12 months alone, we have handled IP work for some of the biggest names in the technology market, steered the litigation work in some of the largest post-financial crisis bankruptcies and won yet another Supreme Court case -- our third in the past two years. We are honored to have those successes recognized by BTI.”
