Chicago-based litigation boutique Tabet DiVito & Rothstein LLC has been named a top-tier firm in the 2018 edition of U.S. News & World Report – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms,” the premier guide to law firms in the United States.

Tabet DiVito & Rothstein (TDR) again received a Tier 2 designation in the categories of Litigation-Patent and Patent Law for the Chicago metropolitan area; it was ranked in Tier 3 in the category of Litigation-Patent nationally.

To be eligible for a “Best Law Firms” designation, a firm must have at least one lawyer listed in the current edition of The Best Lawyers in America, an annual publication that identifies the top four percent of attorneys in the United States.

TDR partner and intellectual property litigator Meredith Martin “Mimi” Addy has been named to Best Lawyers every year since 2007. She is recognized in the 2018 edition for her work in patent law and patent litigation.

Addy joined TDR in May 2016, and leads the firm’s growing intellectual property litigation practice group of 12 attorneys in representing clients with cutting-edge technologies in IP matters not typically handled by general practice firms. The team has built a national reputation due to its success in patent litigation and appeals at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s Patent Trial and Appeal Board, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, in the trial courts, and on certiorari to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes feedback from clients and peer attorneys addressing expertise, responsiveness, cost-effectiveness, civility, integrity, and whether they would refer a client to the firm.
