Rick Nydegger, co-founder of Workman Nydegger, has been named the Best Lawyers® 2014 Salt Lake City Patent Law Lawyer of the Year. Only a single lawyer in each practice area and metropolitan area is honored as Lawyer of the Year. Nydegger, who has been listed in Best Lawyers since 1990, has worked closely with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in the development of several important policy initiatives over the years. A well-respected authority in the field of patenting software, e-commerce and information science technology, he has lectured both nationally and internationally on that topic and has published a number of articles.
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers® has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which almost 50,000 leading attorneys cast nearly five million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
