Myers Bigel Named to Corporate America 2015 Legal Elite

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Myers Bigel Sibley & Sajovec, P.A. (Myers Bigel), the largest independent patent law firm in North Carolina, has been named to the Corporate America 2015 Legal Elite. Myers Bigel won the award for Best Full-Service Intellectual Property Firm – North Carolina.

“Our talented legal team prides itself on keeping up-to-date with this changing legal landscape to better serve our clients,” Managing Partner David Purks said, adding, “For example, issues related to patent litigation continue to grow and evolve with the far-reaching impacts of the America Invents Act, the Protecting American Talent and Entrepreneurship Act of 2015, patent trolls, and decisions by the Supreme Court such as Commil USA, LLC v. Cisco Systems, Inc.”

Myers Bigel attorneys are registered to practice before the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and boast significant prior real-world industry experience that allows them to successfully interact with and counsel both the technical staff and the management of clients.

Individual attorneys recognized by Corporate America include:

Julie Richardson, Electro-Mechanical Arts Patent Prosecution

Lynne Borchers, Patent Litigation

Randal Ayers, Intellectual Property

Rohan Sabapathypillai, Electronics Patents

Myers Bigel was selected by Corporate America News subscribers and national legal practitioners who voted starting in January 2015. The Awards recognize firms using their top-class skills and experience to help companies, big and small, across the nation navigate the ever-more complex legal landscape.

A multifaceted program, the awards are focused on rewarding excellence across all areas of the legal profession including corporate law, bankruptcy matters, personal injury claims, family disputes and criminal allegations.

The recognition of the firm’s talent reflects its continuing serious investment in maintaining continuity of counsel for its clients. This effort has built a stable team of practicing patent lawyers, heavily engaged in improving their work and contributing to a supportive environment for clients and for one another, unlike larger revolving-door firms. The extraordinarily low turnover of attorneys at Myers Bigel allows clients to work with the same attorney familiar with their specific technology or science and individual business throughout the full length of the patent development, filing and grant process.

Without needing to re-learn the technology or business specifics, Myers Bigel attorneys can focus on quality to ensure development of a strong patent that can be successfully enforced in court.

Operating out of the Research Triangle Park area of North Carolina, Myers Bigel represents clients located in the Carolinas, throughout the Southeast, across the United States, and in Europe and Asia.
