Durham, N.C.--()--Murgitroyd is honored to be named the leading patent law firm in Europe by Financial Times.

Murgitroyd was selected as the leading patent law firm out of a list of 142 firms that offer patent attorney services such as drafting, filing, prosecution and strategic counselling in Europe. The list was generated from company websites and the EPI (The Institute of Professional Representatives Before the European Patent Office) by research from Statista.

Firms were ranked by 3 categories: 1. Gold (Very Frequently Recommended), 2. Silver (Frequently Recommended), 3. Bronze (Recommended). Unlike any other firm in Europe, Murgitroyd received gold recommendations in all six sectors: Biotechnology & Food & Chemistry, Pharmaceuticals, Electrical Engineering, IT & Software, Materials and Nanotechnology, Mechanical Engineering (see table attached).

“We are honored to be recognized in such resounding fashion by our clients, as this is a testament to our firm’s commitment to service and innovation,” said Ed Murgitroyd, CEO.

A total of 2,727 participants answered the survey that was conducted between February and April of 2019. The selection was based on recommendations made by clients and peers.
