Bodman and Susan M. Kornfield Recognized for Trademark Law Excellence

By: Bodman PLC

07/16/19

Bodman PLC is pleased to announce that the firm has been ranked as “Highly Recommended” for Trademark Law by the internationally-recognized journal Managing Intellectual Property.

Bodman is one of only three Michigan law firms to be ranked as “Highly Recommended” for Trademark Law, the highest level possible.

The journal also recognized Susan M. Kornfield, chair of Bodman’s Intellectual Property Practice Group and leader of the firm’s IP Brand Protection Team, as a “Trademark Star” for her extraordinary work in intellectual property.

Managing Intellectual Property quoted industry sources who described Kornfield as an “outstanding practitioner” and “someone to call for tricky questions.” She is also listed as a distinguished IP practitioner in Chambers USA, The Best Lawyers in America, Michigan Super Lawyers, and Dbusiness magazine’s “Top Lawyers.” She is the Best Lawyers in America 2019 Trademark “Lawyer of the Year” for the Ann Arbor area. Kornfield handles both transactional and litigation matters and has been selected as an expert witness, mediator, and arbitrator in intellectual property disputes.

To compile its rankings, Managing Intellectual Property conducted research over a six month period in more than 80 jurisdictions, including those most active for IP protection, exploitation and enforcement. The list of recommended law firms and attorneys is based on data obtained from law firms, IP agencies, and in-house counsel through surveys and interviews. No practitioner or firm can pay for inclusion or ask colleagues for recommendations; inclusion is based solely on merit and recommendation by peers and clients.
