Included within this set of lawyers is the "top-class and tenacious" Michael Ciresi, who has an all-round practice that handles business, IP, mass tort and products liability litigation. Commentators have a high regard for his wide-ranging litigation capabilities, but are also particularly impressed by the firm's capacity for IP work. In this arena, it is viewed as the "best in town," with a practice that represents plaintiffs and defendants in mainly technology-oriented disputes." "Talented" Ronald Schutz chairs the firm's national IP department. Martin Lueck has handled some significant cases regarding Internet technology and LCD modules for mobile technologies. This kind of specialty knowledge and experience in IP, as well as other general litigation matters, ensures the firm's position as a leader in the market.
