MADISON/MILWAUKEE/MINNEAPOLIS – DeWitt Ross & Stevens S.C. today announced its inclusion in the world’s leading guide to Patent Professionals, the 2015 IAM Patent 1000. The guide recommends the Intellectual Property practice of the firm and its attorneys Joseph Miotke and Charles Sara as top patent practitioners in Wisconsin. In addition, Sara and Miotke along with DeWitt were also designated as “IP Stars” by Managing Intellectual Property Magazine, the definitive guide to leading IP firms and lawyers.

DeWitt received its recommendation from IAM Patent 1000 for its depth of expertise, market presence, and level of work. When outlining DeWitt’s Intellectual Property Practice Group the guide states, “instead of setting up in heavy-industry orientated Milwaukee, DeWitt Ross & Stevens originated in Madison, where life sciences and chemistry are the dominant sectors. Accordingly, although it now has a firm foothold in each city, biochemistry and medical devices are its key strengths…DeWitt has always made the most of the Western District of Wisconsin’s rocket docket and can deftly prepare complex lawsuits at a smart clip.”

Joseph Miotke, a Milwaukee-based patent litigator and licensed patent attorney who specializes in monetization, was individually recognized by the guide for being a “genius at unlocking untapped value in patent portfolios.”

Charles Sara, Chair of the firm’s Intellectual Property practice group in Madison, was recognized as a “biotechnology ace and prosecution head, who has an affinity with one of the state’s major filers, the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation.”

Created by Intellectual Asset Management Magazine, IAM Patent 1000 identifies leading firms and individuals in all major areas of patent law and practice around the globe. Its extensive research process was conducted over several months by a team of full-time analysts, and involved close to 1,500 interviews with patent specialists across the globe. The results are based on over 1,000 interviews, with both private practice and in-house professionals, and were carried out by our dedicated research team over the last four months.
