David V. Trask and William S. Britt founded TraskBritt, P.C. in 1973. Located in the Intermountain West, the firm represents national and international corporations, research organizations, universities, and individuals throughout the world, with a substantial client base in the European Union and Asia.
TraskBritt was ranked 2nd overall in the Intellectual Asset Management magazine’s patent quality survey for the second year in a row in March 2011. This is the second year of the survey performed by Ocean Tomo, the magazine’s patent ratings partner. Their metric is based on the notion that quality can be defined and measured by the actions of patent holders in their decisions to maintain patents which they believe to have value and abandon those that they believe have little or no value.
Law firms were ranked in four areas – healthcare, information technology, consumer electronics and industrials as well as the overall category that encompasses all technology areas. It is in the overall category that TraskBritt was ranked 2nd.
In the three years that “IP Law & Business” magazine published an independent patent quality study, TraskBritt was one of only four firms in the country to be rated as a leader in more than one technology category each of the three years, earning the number one position for electrical patents and the number three position for chemical patents. The firm was also ranked 71st of the 352 firms ranked in the United States by “Intellectual Property Today” for the number of U.S. utility patents issued during 2007 and 50th for the number of design patents issued. TraskBritt is listed in the Patent, Trademark and Copyright Law Section of the “Martindale-Hubbell Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers,” with an “AV” rating, which is the highest possible rating that reflects legal ability and ethics. Seven of the firm’s attorneys are currently listed among a select group of intellectual property attorneys in “The Best Lawyers in America” publication and five are named by Mountain States Super Lawyers as among the top five percent of lawyers in the state. Both publications are based on a peer-review survey .
The philosophy of TraskBritt is to provide the highest-quality professional and legal services in a timely manner and at a reasonable cost through the use of innovative technologies, practices and procedures and ongoing education and training of the attorneys and professional staff. This philosophy has resulted in a pattern of steady growth that is responsive to the increasing demand for the legal services offered by TraskBritt.
