U.S. News & Best Lawyers® Name the Dobrusin Law Firm a “Best Law Firm” for Intellectual Property

We are proud to announce that U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers® have included the Dobrusin Law Firm on the 2020 list of “Best Law Firms” for intellectual property law!

The Best Law Firm rankings are the product of a thorough evaluation that includes analysis of client and lawyer submissions, peer reviews from leading attorneys, and additional information provided by the law firms under consideration.

The firm earned a Metropolitan Tier 1 ranking – the highest designation in the region – for our handling of patent, trademark, copyright, and other IP matters.

Our Best Law Firm recognition comes just a few months after Eric Dobrusin and Kristen Pursley were individually named to the 2020 edition of the Best Lawyers in America©.
