U.S. News & World Report Recognizes Baer Crossey as One of the Best Law Firms for Information Technology Law


Baer Crossey LLC, a Philadelphia-based law firm, is excited to announce that it has received a “Best Law Firm” designation in Information Technology Law in the 2013 “Best Law Firms” ranking from U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers.  The U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” survey ranked more than 10,000 law firms in 118 practice areas in 170 metropolitan areas in eight states.  The rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer reviews from leading attorneys in their field, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process.

Information Technology Law is defined as a transaction-based practice that addresses the issues that arise when companies develop, license, acquire or sell information technology and computer-related products and services.  In this area, Baer Crossey attorneys typically advise clients — across a broad spectrum of industries and technologies — regarding intellectual property, licensing, software, hardware, technology transfer, outsourcing, e-commerce, procurement, consulting services, internet, telecommunications, joint ventures/strategic alliances, data security, domestic and international privacy regulations, directives and standards.

“We are very proud to be ranked as a Tier 1 firm for Information Technology Law advice in the Philadelphia region,” said Chris McDemus, a Managing Partner of the firm.  “We’ve been hearing this from our clients, which include nationally-known technology start-ups as well as companies doing billions of dollars in sales, but it’s humbling to receive confirmation of the fact from a nationally-renowned publication.”

Frederic Wilf, a Managing Partner of the firm, believes the firm achieved its Tier 1 status by providing “pragmatic and actionable advice married to the financial and business objectives of the client.”  Explains Wilf, “We are business people with law degrees.”
