(Revised February 6 and 7, 2015 to correct a typographical error in the patent count for two firms.)
The USPTO issued 21951 design patents in 2012. The goal of this toteboard is to list the firms that helped clients to obtain these US design patents. It ranks the firms according to the number of US design patents obtained. Each firm was invited in January 2015 to submit a simple online questionnaire. Each firm was asked to report only US design patents for which that firm is listed on the front page of the granted patent. Here are the results of those reports.
