For the fourth time in recent years, Michael Dilworth has been recognized by IAM among the top intellectual property professionals worldwide.

The IAM 1000 list of the world’s leading patent professionals is the industry’s foremost directory of the world’s top attorneys and firms working in the intellectual property field.

To compile the IAM 1000, the organization conducted thousands of interviews with IP attorneys, professionals, and expert witnesses in dozens of countries around the world. The five-month-long process was administered by IAM’s eight person research team based in London and Hong Kong. IAM’s extensive vetting process analyzes feedback given by industry peers and clients, making the IAM 1000 directory the most objective and thoroughly researched resource of its kind.

For over twenty-five years, Mr. Dilworth has worked as an intellectual property attorney and strategic advisor to leading innovation companies, both domestic and multinational. His practice focuses on transactions and due diligence, inter partes and post-grant proceedings, portfolio management, and opinions and extends to international patent law and worldwide patent prosecution, including European Patent Office practices and the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT).

As a member of several professional organizations – including the American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA) and the Intellectual Property Owners Association (IPO) – Mr. Dilworth’s repeat inclusion in the IAM 1000 directory only serves to underscore a career-long record of service and leadership in the field of IP law.
