McKool Smith Principals Alfonso Chan and Nick Matich have been named among the world’s pre-eminent IP strategists in the latest edition of IAM Strategy 300. This one-of-a-kind book includes a list of people who, according to extensive study by a team with offices in London, Washington, DC, and Hong Kong, are world-class experts in developing and implementing strategies that maximize the value of patents, copyright, trademarks, and other IP rights. In order to identify these IP leaders—individuals whose business is the creation, development, and deployment of strategies that enable IP owners to gain the most value from their portfolios—the IAM research team spoke with a wide range of senior corporate IP managers in North America, Europe, and Asia, as well as third-party IP service providers. The IAM Strategy 300 only includes those who have been nominated numerous times as exceptional IP strategists by various parties.
IAM states the following:
"Making light work of complex IP cases, Alfonso Chan is a master in the courtroom. He carefully crafts trial strategies that will resonate with judges and juries to bring in significant wins for his clients."
"Nicholas Matich is an outstanding lawyer and superb litigator with a deep knowledge of the IP system." "He handles disputes flawlessly and delivers top results, and his abilities to manage and see the whole strategic picture are unmatched."
