A clear pattern: Lee & Hayes racks up top IP honors for third year in a row

Spokane-based Lee & Hayes grabbed the No. 1 rankings in patent quality and in the information technology industry, according to a recent publication that used industry-wide evaluations.

Those rankings were the third consecutive year for Lee & Hayes to earn those top ratings in surveys published by Intellectual Asset Management  Magazine, with ratings provided by Ocean Tomo Patent Ratings.

The dominance of Lee & Hayes in the IP patent quality ranking reflects its emphasis on building valuable patent portfolios with a focus on maximizing the quality and value of each patent component within the overall patent strategy, a Lee & Hayes press release said.

In addition to the Spokane's firm being chosen as No. 1 for quality patents, co- founder Lewis Lee has been selected as one of “The World’s Leading IP Strategists” by London-based IAM.
