Community News – December 2018

Keller/Anderle LLP, a nationally recognized bet-the-company business litigation firm based in Irvine, has been selected to the list of “Top Boutique Firms of 2018,” as chosen by the Los Angeles and San Francisco Daily Journals, one of only 20 firms so honored across the entire state. Keller/Anderle was selected in the Commercial Litigation category in recognition of its success as a powerhouse trial firm. The Daily Journal “Top Boutiques” honor is one of the most coveted in the state for specialized “niche” firms. Literally thousands of California firms fit in the “boutique” category, including hundreds in the commercial litigation category. “We are honored to have been selected again as one of the top boutique firms in California,” said Kay Anderle, managing partner. “This recognition reflects the excellent results our attorneys have achieved in high stakes, complex commercial litigation. We have some of the most highly-honored attorneys in the state for a firm of any size.”

Intellectual property litigation attorney Brent Babcock has represented clients in more than 130 Patent Trial and Appeal Board proceedings, more than 35 patent interferences and dozens of high-stakes cases in federal district court. Now, Babcock brings that 26-year track record of successful patent litigation experience to Womble Bond Dickinson.

Babcock primarily focuses on serving tech industry clients. He has extensive experience in USPTO trials and post-grant proceedings, including Inter Partes Review (IPR), Covered Business Method Review (CBM), Post Grant Review (PGR), and Derivation proceedings. Intellectual Asset Management magazine has repeatedly named Babcock one of its top 40 attorneys nationwide for PTAB post-grant matters. Babcock will head Womble Bond Dickinson’s PTAB Trials practice group. In addition, Babcock counsels IP clients in pre-litigation, pre-interference and post-grant proceeding issues, as well as in federal appeals and patent-related alternative dispute resolutions. He is a frequent speaker on post-grant proceedings issues and has been regularly interviewed by numerous media outlets for patent litigation and PTAB insights.
