More than half of Madderns partners have been named in MIP’s global “IP Stars” handbook for 2014.

Senior Partner, Craig Vinall, along with Martin Pannall, Mark O’Donnell and Anthony Lee have been recognised for their outstanding patent work, particularly in the areas of patent prosecution, strategy and patent opinion. Mark O’Donnell picked up a coveted ✓✓✓ (3 tick) ranking for patent prosecution; one of only five individuals to receive this nationally. From our trade marks team, Louise Emmett has been recognised as an IP Star for her outstanding trade mark prosecution, strategy and counselling skills.
