    "We are delighted to be recognized as one of the top firms in Miami specializing in intellectual property law," said name partner Steven Peretz. "My partners and I have devoted our careers to this area of the law so we especially value the top ranking."

    All three name partners in the firm - Steven Peretz, Michael Chesal and Leora Herrmann -- are Board Certified in Intellectual Property law by the Florida Bar and have each been recognized in "Best Lawyers in America" for intellectual property law.

    Steven Peretz, who focuses his practice on trademark, copyright, and patent litigation in federal courts, has obtained several multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements for his clients, including most recently a $4.5 million settlement of a patent and false advertising case in Texas. He is a former Chair of the Florida Bar's Intellectual Property Law Committee and is frequently invited to educate professional and business groups regarding the identification, protection and commercialization of intellectual property rights. Peretz received his bachelor's degree with High Honors in Economics from Wesleyan University and his law degree from the University of Chicago Law School.

He devotes most of his time to helping businesses protect their trade names and brands. Chesal has been named by Super Lawyers on its list of "Top 100" lawyers in Florida. He previously served as chairman of the Florida Bar's Intellectual Property Law Committee and spearheaded a task force to update Florida's Trademark Act to respond to changes in federal law. Most recently, Chesal was named chairman of the IP Certification Committee of the Florida Bar, which is responsible for qualifying those attorneys seeking Board Certification in the field of intellectual property law. He is a graduate of the University of Florida and received his law degree from the University of Miami School of Law.
