Troy, Mich. —November 4, 2021— Fishman Stewart, PLLC, an intellectual property specialty law firm, is pleased to announce it has been recognized as a tier-one law firm by U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers® in the 2022 edition of “Best Law Firms.” In this newly released annual edition, Fishman Stewart is ranked a Tier 1 firm at the metropolitan level in four categories:

  • Litigation – Intellectual Property
  • Litigation – Patent
  • Patent Law
  • Trademark Law

The U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” list is based on a rigorous evaluation process that encompasses a collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer reviews from leading attorneys in the field, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process. To be eligible for a 2022 Best Law Firm ranking, the firm must first have at least one lawyer recognized in the 27th Edition of The Best Lawyers in America®, which recognizes 5% of lawyers practicing in the United States.

Receiving a tier designation reflects the high level of respect a firm has earned among other leading lawyers and clients in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism and their integrity—and signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.
