2015 US Trademark Toteboard

From 2005 to 2014, Intellectual Property Today magazine served the IP community by providing toteboards ranking US patent and trademark firms according to the number of patents and trademarks obtained for clients each year.

The Ant-Like Persistence blog now carries on this tradition.

The goal of this toteboard is to list the firms that helped clients obtain US trademark registrations in 2015.  The toteboard seeks to list US trademark registrations granted in 2015.    Firms were invited in January 2016 to submit a simple online questionnaire.  The closing date for the questionnaires was February 15, 2016.

(March 1, 2016 update:  Banner & Witcoff responded on February 1, 2016 and I somehow failed to get that information into the table.  Today I added a row to the table for the Banner & Witcoff listing.)
