News > RMMS Receives Continued Recognition in IAM Patent 1000 – Five Firm Partners Individually Ranked
RMMS is once again honored to have been recognized as a leading intellectual property firm in the 2021 edition of IAM Patent 1000: The World’s Leading Patent Professionals, a guide to the top intellectual property law practitioners around the globe. The firm retained its strong ranking in the “Silver” band for Intellectual Property Litigation. Regarding the firm's work, IAM notes:
For generic drug manufacturers, Rakoczy Molino Mazzochi Siwik is a godsend; the prolific life sciences patent litigation boutique has handled several hundred Hatch-Waxman and Biologics Price Competition and Innovation Act suits since opening its doors in 2004, giving it a major advantage and a rich playbook to utilise for the next few hundred cases.
RMMS is also pleased that five of our partners were recognized for their individual accomplishments. Lara FitzSimmons makes her debut in the IAM Patent 1000 as a leading regulatory counselling and deal lawyer, with IAM calling her "a vital cog in the firm's litigation efforts thanks to her for her facility for settlement negotiation." Ms. FitzSimmons joins William Rakoczy, Paul Molino, Deanne Mazzochi, and Eric Hunt in the individual rankings.
