Olshan Named Top IP Litigation Law Firm By Fortune 500 General Counsel
NEW YORK, January 9, 2013 - Olshan announced today that it has been selected by Corporate Counsel magazine as one of the "2013 Go-To Law Firms®" for Fortune 500 Companies in Intellectual Property Litigation, placing the firm in an elite group that delivers exceptional work for in-house legal departments at Fortune 500 companies.
“Olshan is honored to be included among this highly select group of law firms,” said Steven R.
