Top IP Attorney in US credits colleagues including paralegals

Let’s hear it for teamwork!

"Topping off another year of exceptional results on the intellectual property front, Irell & Manella LLP’s Morgan Chu has been named the Number 1 Intellectual Property lawyer in the U.S. by Chambers & Partners.

"Mr. Chu was among only 19 American lawyers singled out by Chambers as being the top practitioners in their respective fields. Long recognized by Chambers in its U.S. and Global directories of leading business lawyers, Mr. Chu was one of only six IP litigators nationally to be considered for Chambers’ new Award for Excellence designating the No. 1 spot in the category. Mr. Chu’s recognition complements Irell’s selection as the ‘U.S. Intellectual Property Law Firm of the Year’ by Chambers Global for 2005-06.


"Mr. Chu holds a B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. from UCLA, an M.S.L. from Yale University, and a J.D. from Harvard. He has been recognized by The National Law Journal as one of the 100 Most Influential Lawyers in America and one of the nation’s top ten trial lawyers.

"Despite the accolades, Mr. Chu credits his success to fellow Irell colleagues. ‘The Chambers’ Award for Excellence really belongs to many lawyers, paralegals and staff at Irell & Manella, and not to any one individual,’ he said. ‘We work as a team, and whatever we have achieved is because of the effort made by everyone.’"
