PurdyLucey named among World’s Leading Patent Professionals

We are delighted to announce that our Patent Attorneys Michael Lucey, Barry Purdy, Mark Carmody, and Naoise Gordon have all been recognised among the world’s leading Patent Professions in the ninth edition IAM Patent 1000: The World’s Leading Patent Professionals – a unique guide that identifies the top patent professionals in key jurisdictions around the globe.

The guide has been compiled following an extensive research process. Over five months, IAM conducted in the region of 1,800 interviews with numerous attorneys at law, patent attorneys and in-house counsel to gather market intelligence on the leading players in the field.

Leading firms of which PurdyLucey is listed as one are identified in terms of prosecution, transactions, and litigation tables.  Firms qualify for a listing on the basis of their depth of expertise, market presence, and the level of work on which they are typically engaged.

“Since its founding 12 years ago, PurdyLucey has cultivated an innate reputation in the IP Irish space for our meticulous, efficient prosecution of life sciences and high-technology patents. All seven of our vastly experienced team have impressive academic backgrounds and many come with industry and/or overseas private practice experience. Michael Lucey and Barry Purdy, each has more than two decades invested in the game – experience they put to good use on behalf of multinationals, SMEs and start-ups alike. Competitors applaud high-technologist Lucey as “approachable, clear and trustworthy”. Food science, materials, biotechnology and medical technology ace Purdey delights university clients with a refined service tailored to their specific needs. Biochemistry PhD Mark Carmody has broad international horizons – he previously worked at a Japanese law firm in Osaka and now counsels Irish, American, Australian and Canadian clients on patent strategy. The recent recruitment of Naoise Gordon reflects PurdyLucey’s eye for talent: all-rounder Gordon – who spent time in Unilever’s patent department and established the Irish branch of a UK patent attorney firm upon returning to private practice – is a precision draftsman, portfolio strategist, IP risk analyst and EPO oppositions and appeals ace. ”
