Harness Dickey is pleased to announce that IAM Patent 1000 has selected Harness Dickey Principals Bryant WadeMark Elchuk and David Utykanski for inclusion in the IAM Patent 1000 2016 – The World’s Leading Patent Professionals. This marks the third straight year that Wade, Elchuk and Utykanski are included in the rankings, as well as the fifth edition of the IAM Patent 1000. Considered the leading global private practice patent law professional guide, the IAM Patent 1000 provides detailed information to assist business and individuals in identifying best-in-class patent prosecution, licensing and litigation practitioners.

In their entry for Harness Dickey, IAM notes:

Abundant resources and a ‘deep bench’ make Harness, Dickey & Pierce a force to be reckoned with in the Wolverine State. The patent division can be relied on to stay the course in the toughest litigation, while it also does an excellent job thinking creatively to overcome any obstacles throughout the prosecution process. Innovators in every sector can always find on-point technical knowledge at the firm. High flyers in aerospace, for example, can call on Mark Elchuk, a top prosecutor and trusted opinion giver. Electronics manufacturers make a beeline to portfolio manager par excellence Bryant Wade, who has carved out a niche representing the interests of Japanese entities; he always makes the (considerable) effort to visit clients on their home turf regularly so that he can really get to know their business. As vehicles become ever more high-tech, car companies find David Utykanski’s all-encompassing technical know-how a great comfort; the versatile attorney is a favourite of medical device enterprises, too.

The guide is compiled annually following extensive research. From its offices in London and Hong Kong, the IAM team interviews thousands of attorneys, patent attorneys, in-house counsel and their clients around the globe to help identify the leaders in patent prosecution. Only attorneys with consistently positive feedback are featured in the publication.
