As part of our showcase of a selection of this year’s deserving Legal Elite Awards winners we showcase how the practice came to win not just one but two of our prestigious accolades. Established in 2011, Morris & Kamlay was designed to offer a pioneering approach to its IP services. Drawing on the experience of its founders, who spent many years at two of the largest and oldest intellectual property specialty firms in the world, the firm now set out to create a truly unique service offering designed with the client in mind. From the firm’s inception, it challenged the traditional law firm model by eliminating minimum billable hours targets for attorneys, which turn lawyers into billing machines that are incentivized to maximize the time spent on billable client work. It also eliminated the hierarchical leadership structure in favour of a flat organization to foster transparency and firm-wide collaboration on its clients’ matters. As a result, Morris & Kamlay can relentlessly focus on supporting clients’ true interests and working with them to create an outcome that will meet their business needs. The team’s goal is to provide the best possible counsel at reasonable cost. Among the firm’s practice areas is its work in the M&A space, in which it has advised clients on just over $20 Billion of transactions. The firm’s attorneys are experts at identifying and addressing both common and unique IP issues that arise in these transactions. Morris & Kamlay attorneys are skilled at tailoring patent portfolios to bring true value in support of their clients’ business goals. The firm also helps clients bring patent infringement claims by a competitor to an early end by finding and acquiring patents to counter-assert against the competitor. These services and many others ensure that every client receives the IP support and service they need to keep their intellectual property safe. Overall, Morris & Kamlay works tirelessly to provide best-in-class intellectual property services with integrity, and this will remain as the firm’s ongoing focus as it looks towards a bright future.
