Rankings & Recognitions

Roy Melzer continues to be recognized by the world’s leading ranking guides, year after year. He was identified by IAM Patent 1000 2018 as a Leading Individual and one of the world’s leading patent professionals. Roy was described as someone that “combines creativity, practicality and strategic thinking to help build strong IP portfolios. More than that, he’s a trusted adviser and long-term thinking whom clients can trust to provide common-sense advice. While many patent attorneys lack the ability to envision how an underlying invention will work in the market place, and therefore overcome obstacles, Roy is an exception to the rule.”

Roy’s recent professional achievements were also praised by The Legal 500 2018 Edition, which lauded his work on behalf of Mobli Technologies, “regarding one of the most valuable patent applications in Israeli history,”.

Managing Intellectual Property IP Stars joined the other international rankings in commending Roy’s ingenuity, writing that he “is very good and combines creativity and practicality in drafting and prosecuting complicated cases.”
