May 24, 2016—Terry Sanks and David Maire have been recognized as “IP Stars” by Managing Intellectual Property (“MIP”) magazine in the fourth edition of the IP Stars Handbook—a Managing IP for 2016. Dave is recognized as a “Patent Star” for his patent prosecution practice. Terry’s recognition resulted from his varied legal practice covering primarily patent prosecution and IP litigation, as well as trademarks, copyrights, unfair competition, trade secrets, and licensing. As a result, Terry is recognized as both a “Patent Star” and a “Trademark Star.” Both founders of BWSM have been continuously recognized as “IP Stars” since the inception of this honor in 2013.
The IP Stars Handbook highlights the country’s leading intellectual property attorneys based on surveys and interviews where a recognized lawyer’s practice and industry experience along with recommendations from their peers and clients are used to identify such attorneys to in-house counsel at Fortune 500 companies.
