Mr. Banys is one of only 50 lawyers highlighted in the list published by The Recorder, California's premiere statewide legal publication. He is the head of The Lanier Law Firm's national intellectual property practice, and leads the firm's office in Palo Alto, Calif.
"Chris indeed is one of the country's top intellectual property attorneys, dedicated to helping inventors and small companies take on the world's largest tech companies," says attorney Mark Lanier, founder of The Lanier Law Firm. "His legal skills and experience are a tremendous asset to our firm and our clients."
The 2012 Lawyers on the Fast Track list appears in the April 9, 2012, issue of The Recorder. The 50 lawyers will be honored on June 5, 2012, at a luncheon where U.S. Magistrate Judge Paul Grewal will serve as the keynote speaker.
To develop the 2012 listing of the Lawyers on the Fast Track, The Recorder editors reviewed nominations for more than 300 California lawyers who earned their law degrees fewer than 10 years ago. The honorees were selected based on their outstanding work as leaders, lawyers and community members.
Mr. Banys represents clients in patent and other IP disputes nationwide, with a focus on vindicating the rights of individual inventors and small companies. He leads the firm's efforts in financing legal challenges against corporate infringers for worthwhile patents and inventions. In addition to his work in high-stakes intellectual property matters, Mr. Banys also has litigated commercial, criminal, immigration, probate, personal injury, employment, and state-benefits matters in federal, state and administrative law courts.
