Published April 24, 2020

Klarquist is pleased to announce that Chambers USA has again ranked the firm in the top tier for intellectual property law firms based in Oregon. Attorneys William D. Noonan and John D. Vandenberg also received individual recognition as premier intellectual property attorneys in the state.

Chambers identified Klarquist as a frontrunner in the intellectual property legal market based on the firm’s deft handling of complex prosecution and litigation cases related to trademarks, patents, and trade secrets, both nationwide and in the Asian market. The rankings recognize the firm’s expertise in a wide range of industry sectors, including biochemistry, nanotechnology, and software.

I view the firm as something of a hidden gem,” market observers noted. “It produces high-quality work comparable to what large firms in the big cities can provide.

William D. Noonan, M.D. was recognized as a highly regarded patent prosecutor and has an excellent reputation in the field, particularly in the medicine and ophthalmology sector. As both a physician and a patent attorney, Dr. Noonan offers his clients a broad perspective on the practical applications of medical and biological inventions.

John D. Vandenberg has been known as “one of the best lawyers in Oregon,” according to Chambers’ research. Mr. Vandenberg has been particularly sought after for his litigation expertise and strategic advice in the technology sector and has litigated patents around the country for clients including Microsoft, SAP, ETAP, Nautilus, and Mentor Graphics.
