Aug. 15, 2016 – University of Houston Law Center Professor and former Dean Raymond T. Nimmer has been selected by his peers for the 23rd year in a row as one of the "Best Lawyers in America" in his specialty areas.
Colleagues also recognized him as the 2017 copyright law "Lawyer of the Year" for Houston. Only one attorney in each practice area and community is honored with the title.
In addition to Copyright Law, Nimmer was cited for his work in Information Technology Law, Litigation - Intellectual Property, Litigation – Patent, Patent Law, and Trademark Law.
