November 1, 2016

PHILADELPHIA (Nov. 1, 2016) – The intellectual property law firm Panitch Schwarze Belisario & Nadel LLP is pleased to announce that it again has been named a "Best Law Firm" by U.S. News – Best Lawyers® for 2017, achieving national rankings in the practice areas of intellectual property litigation, trademark law, patent litigation and patent law.

The firm also achieved Tier 1 metropolitan rankings in the Philadelphia area for intellectual property litigation, patent litigation and patent law, and earned additional rankings in copyright law and trademark law.

Best Law Firms rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in their field and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process.

The highest honor, a Tier 1 ranking, is based on a firm's overall evaluation, which is derived from a combination of its clients' feedback, the regard that lawyers in other firms in the same practice area have for the firm, and information that the firm provided to Best Lawyers via a survey.

To be eligible for a Best Law Firm ranking, a firm must have at least one lawyer included in The Best Lawyers in America®. Attorneys are neither required nor allowed to pay a fee to be listed. Eight Panitch Schwarze attorneys have been named to the 2017 edition of Best Lawyers: Ronald L. Panitch, William W. Schwarze, Martin G. Belisario, Alan S. Nadel, Frederick A. Tecce, Weihong Hsing, and John D. Simmons.
