Lane Powell and Attorneys Bodine and Minsk Named as ‘Top’ in the 2016 IAM Patent 1000
The 2016 IAM Patent 1000 recently recognized Lane Powell as one of the top patent law firms in Washington state and named Brian G. Bodine and Alan D. Minsk as top individuals in the practice.
The publication stated that “whether prosecuting or litigating, Seattle-headquartered Lane Powell takes a refreshingly commercial approach to the practice of intellectual property,” and described Bodine as “bright, pragmatic and consistent,” who is “well respected in the state,” and highlighted his significant Federal Circuit victory on behalf of World Class Technologies in a patent infringement case. Minsk was noted for his “unique skill set,” and the “quasi-in-house role he assumes for technology companies,” and that “he understands what clients are looking for and how best to deliver it.”
