Lowenstein Sandler was included twice in Juristat’s rankings for top-performing patent law firms in each United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) technology center. The firm was ranked 16th among firms in Technology Center 2100 (computer architecture software and information security) and Technology Center 2400 (computer networks, multiplex, cable, and cryptography/security).
Juristat’s rankings consider both volume and performance in each specific technology center. It bases the rankings on how well a firm performed in three key metrics over a 12-month period. These metrics are:
- Number of applications filed
- Allowance rate
- Average number of office actions before allowance
This analysis was conducted between November 2020 and January 2021, and analyzed public applications disposed (or in the case of the first metric, applications filed) between January 1, 2018, and December 31, 2018. To qualify for inclusion, a firm must have filed a minimum of 100 applications in the tech center during that time period. This ensures the firm has extensive experience in that technology center and provides an appropriate-sized dataset the evaluate performance metrics.
