A Ft. Mitchell attorney was among those honored with his Cincinnati law firm.

Chambers USA: America's Leading Lawyers for Business, a national report of American lawyers and law firms, included Wood Herron & Evans LLP and four of its attorneys, including Ft. Mitchell's Gregory Lunn.

"We are thankful to our clients and peers whose feedback to Chambers USA made this recognition possible," said Lunn, senior partner at Wood Herron & Evans, in a news release. "The firm's inclusion in this prestigious ranking is further testament to our successes and the service we deliver for our clients."

The report describes Wood Herron & Evans, the region’s largest intellectual property (IP) law firm, as a “respected IP boutique with expertise in all areas relating to IP, with particular strength in patent preparation and prosecution.” The firm’s “large stable of attorneys with significant industry experience” was also noted.

Additionally, the four Wood Herron & Evans lawyers recognized in the 2016 Chambers USA report for their excellence in IP law in Ohio include Kenneth Germain, Stephen Gillen, and Lori Krafte.
