Davies Collison Cave (DCC) is yet again recognised as one of the world's leading patent firms by the IAM Patent 1000 2020 publication. The IAM Patent 1000 rankings is widely recognised as the definitive directory exclusively dedicated to profiling the firms across 48 country-specific chapters, and the individuals identified as leaders within them.

As one of the most prolific filers of patents in Australia, DCC is thrilled to announce that we have been ranked 'Highly Recommended' for Patent Prosecution, Silver tier for Patent Litigation, and 'Recommended' for Transactions.

Regarded "a darling of large corporations and organisations", IAM Patent noted that DCC's "band of patent attorneys, litigators and transactional lawyers is the crème de la crème" in Australia.

Among our attorneys, DCC Patents Managing Principal David Webber is recognised for leading the patent group to serve "a wide array of clients – from start-ups and research institutions through to major corporations – to their utmost satisfaction"; Richard Brown is noted as an "incredibly versatile operator across information and communcation technology, electronics and physics-related fields"; Michael Caine's "pre-eminent standing in the IP community" and Paul Dewar's role as heading the Sydney patent litigation group are recognised; and Ian Pascarl is identified as DCC's "key litigator".

We congratulate the following DCC Principals who are ranked in this year's edition:

More than 850 individual law firm submissions, 1400 practitioner interviews and 1500 client submissions shaped this year's rankings. View the full Australian rankings here and the Singapore rankings here.
