CHICAGO—Brinks Gilson & Lione, one of the largest intellectual property law firms in the United States, has been named a 2014 Top Trademark Firm by Intellectual Property Today, ranking 15th of 202 law firms according to the number of 2013 U.S. trademark registrations that list the firm or an individual from the firm as the legal representative.
