For the 12th straight year, Rothwell Figg partner Jess Collen is included in the list of New York Metro Super Lawyers. Using a patented selection process, Super Lawyers selects the top 5% of attorneys to the Super Lawyers list every year, recognizing the top attorneys nationwide.
For organizations including professional sports teams, nonprofits, a wide variety of luxury brands, and media clients, Jess provides guidance, counsel, and advocacy on trademarks and brand protection, copyrights, social media, and all aspects of intellectual property protection, enforcement, and monetization. He has litigated hundreds of cases for U.S. and foreign clients in the federal trial courts, courts of appeal, administrative tribunals, and even the U.S. Supreme Court. Few U.S. trademark lawyers have handled as many trademark office registrations and Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB) cases as Jess. With over 35 years of experience, and client relationships measured in decades, he brings strategic thinking, professionalism, and continuity to the development and management of what are often a company’s most valuable asset: its brands.
Super Lawyers selects attorneys using a patented multiphase selection process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with independent research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis. The objective is to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used as a resource for attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel. Since Super Lawyers is intended to be used as an aid in selecting a lawyer, they limit the lawyer ratings to those who can be hired and retained by the public.
