Lexology, an international legal intelligence service, has selected Matt Braunel as a 2013 Client Choice award winner.
Established in 2005, the Client Choice awards recognize law firms and partners around the world that stand apart for their excellent client service. The London-based organization reviewed more than 1,000 nominations from the U.S. and Canada and selected 222 winners. Just six were selected from Missouri, including Braunel, who was honored in the category of Intellectual Property-Trademarks.
Lexology and its partner, the International Law Office, begins its research by surveying corporate counsel subscribers. These in-house attorneys are asked to rate individual lawyers and law firms on the quality of legal advice, value for money, commercial awareness, effective communication, billing transparency, tailored fee structures, response time, sharing of expertise and use of technology. From this research, Lexology compiles a shortlist of candidates, who are invited to submit client references. After follow-up interviews and research, a winner is selected.
Braunel’s intellectual property practice focuses on litigation of all forms, with an emphasis on brand integrity, including the development and execution of successful strategies that help brand owners monitor, enforce, and protect their brands. He has led successful IP litigation efforts for Energizer, Furminator, and United Pet Group, among other clients.
Braunel holds degrees in Chemistry and Mathematics, and completed graduate-level course work in radiopharmaceutical chemistry before attending law school at Saint Louis University.
