Katten partners Kristin Achterhof, Karen Artz Ash, Robert Breisblatt, Eric Cohen, Roger Furey, Floyd Mandell and Brian Winterfeldt have been named IP Stars in the 2014 edition of the Managing Intellectual Property IP Handbook, the only publication of its kind to focus on the leading intellectual property agencies and law firms worldwide. IP Stars ranks market-leading attorneys at top US law firms based on nominations by peers in the legal field, with final inclusion determined by client recommendations and editorial research. In addition, Katten is listed in the IP Handbook as a "Highly Recommended" firm for intellectual property in Illinois, and a "Tier 4" firm nationally for trademark contentious and trademark prosecution. The Handbook states Katten is particularly known for "trade identity protection, pharmaceutical and medical device patent litigation and fashion law practice" and notes recent successes defending clients Kimberly-Clark in a trade dress infringement matter and Microsoft in a trademark infringement action.
