Meredith Martin “Mimi” Addy, a partner at Tabet DiVito & Rothstein LLC and an accomplished intellectual property litigator, has been named one of the “Top 250 Women in Litigation” for 2016 by Benchmark Litigation.

Addy has two decades of experience in complex litigation, including numerous trials in cases in federal district court, at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s Patent Trial and Appeal Board, and before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. She represents entrepreneurial and innovative companies in sectors such as software, technology, biotechnology, and pharmaceuticals.

Because of her knowledge of patent litigation and the Federal Circuit, Addy has also testified before Congress on the state of the Federal Circuit and patent appeals. She writes the blog BusinessDeNovo on issues relating to innovation, business, and patent law.

Benchmark’s Top 250 Women in Litigation, now in its fifth edition, honors the accomplishments of leading U.S. female litigators representing most of the 50 states, plus the District of Columbia. The publication bases its list primarily on the results of research it conducted for the 2016 edition of Benchmark Litigation, the parent publication of Top 250 Women in Litigation. Peer review and overall depth of litigation career are important factors in this research.
