Fross Zelnick Ranked No. 1 Trademark Filer Among U.S. Law Firms by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

Partner Susan Upton Douglass Named Leading Individual Filer

NEW YORK -- Fross Zelnick Lehrman & Zissu, P.C., a leading law firm specializing in trademark, copyright, design and unfair competition law, has filed more trademark applications than any other law firm nationwide and is the most active law firm user of the Trademark Electronic Application System (TEAS), according to the Department of Commerce's U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Susan Upton Douglass, a partner at the firm, was recently named the most prolific individual attorney filer by NameProtect, a digital brand management company.

The recognition of Fross Zelnick and Ms. Douglass was made in conjunction with the USPTO's public commemoration today of the one-millionth trademark application filed using TEAS. Launched in November of 1997, TEAS is a Web-based application process that now accounts for the vast majority of all trademark filings.

"Protecting intellectual property is the essence of our business and being recognized by the USPTO as being the nation's leading law firm filer of trademark applications underscores the importance owners of valuable brands place on fully protecting their trademark rights," said Larry Apolzon, a Fross Zelnick partner.

Fross Zelnick consistently ranks as one of the leading intellectual property law firms. For the past three years, Fross Zelnick has been named as the top U.S. law firm for both litigation and counseling/prosecution work in Managing Intellectual Property's annual survey of trademark and copyright firms. Additionally, nine Fross Zelnick partners were named to the 2006 edition of The International Who's Who of Business Lawyers in the category of trademark expertise.
