Horten er placeret i IAM Patent 1000's bedste tier (gold tier) for 2016 og får flotte ord med vejen:
"Glowing reports from peers and patrons see Horten promoted to the gold tier for 2016. It is “a force to be reckoned with in high-stakes litigation”, with several leading advocates on its books. “Incredibly knowledgeable, easy to work with and always on top of things”, group head Anders Valentin is top of the pops in the eyes of generic drug manufacturers. “He is particularly strong from a strategic perspective.” The vastly experienced Ole Damsbo has led on some of the most important Danish cases in the last three decades and is another fan favourite. “Ole is incredibly creative and can turn on a pinhead. He can shift the momentum of a case and is fantastic during hearings.” Opponents concede that “he can be very difficult to contain”. The two continue to do great things for Allergan in cases concerning blockbuster drugs. It isn’t all life sciences at Horten, though – the set can square up with confidence in any arena."
