June 22, 2016 We are so thrilled to announce that today marks the ten year anniversary of Myers Wolin, LLC. We started the firm with a belief that we would succeed if we aligned our core values with the interests of our clients. We focused on being responsive and timely in all of our communications and delivering business-actionable advice, thereby providing an impactful, reliable and easy to understand work product. Over these ten years, we have gradually expanded our team of professionals, and our reach, with entrepreneurial advocates that are interested in growing the firm as well as themselves. Our team is uniquely equipped to position our clients for growth and success.

By continuing the same attention to our core values, we have also expanded our core footprint in two critical fields. First, with the addition of a resident Japanese Patent Attorney in our office, we now have a Japan Practice Group that is dedicated to addressing the intellectual property and business needs of our clients from Japan and our domestic clients desiring to serve the Japanese market. Second, we have expanded our practice beyond intellectual property, and we now handle complex domestic and international commercial transactions that have allowed us to assist our clients with their corporate and business needs. Both of these developments have occurred as a natural expansion of our own continued growth and strong relationship with our clients.

We owe all of the above to our clients, colleagues and friends that continue to confide in us and trust us to protect them, advocate on their behalf and function as a partner in their continued growth and success. We will continue to challenge ourselves and grow to meet the needs of our clients and colleagues around the world, as we look forward to the next ten years and beyond!
