Sughrue Mion is pleased to announce that two of its partners, Alan Kasper and Bill Mandir, have been named as experts in their field in the new Euromoney "Patent Expert Guide" for 2003. Inclusion in this guide is in recognition of well-earned reputations established in the marketplace over a period of time.
In compiling the Guide, Euromoney Legal Media Group commissioned its research department to carry out an in-depth study of experts in ten fields of law. The initial stage of the research process involved distributing 3500 questionnaires to senior practitioners and in-house counsel involved in the practice area in over 60 jurisdictions. The questionnaires asked leading figures to nominate those practitioners they considered to be among the most capable for advice. The results were analyzed, screened for firm, network and alliance bias and followed up with several months of face-to-face Interviews.
As a final verification, the list was discussed with a select group of advisers from leading legal centers worldwide, including: New York, Washington DC, Sydney, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Paris, Frankfurt, London, Chicago and Singapore.
