Burris Law founder, Kelly Burris, was recently recognized as one of the IAM Patent 1000, a list of the world’s leading patent professionals for 2021. The IAM Patent 1000 is regarded as a definitive guide for those seeking to identify world-class, private practice patent expertise and leading expert witnesses in the U.S. Published by IAM, the list required exhaustive qualitative research to identify outstanding firms and individuals across multiple jurisdictions. To qualify firms worthy of the list, IAMaccounted for such factors as depth of knowledge, market presence, type of work, and positive peer and client feedback. According to IAM, “[T]he research was conducted entirely independently of any commercial considerations. All firms and individuals ranked in the publication are included because the market told us that they should be.”

IAM is one of the world’s leading IP business media platforms. It was launched as a magazine in July 2003 to address the need for organizations to maximize the value of their intellectual property and other intangibles and to examine the strategies they can put in place to do this. IAM treats intellectual property as a business asset and tool rather than simply as a legal right. Members of its international editorial team have long-established track records in the specialist and business press, including the Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times.
