    SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ, April 04, 2024 /24-7PressRelease/ -- William C. Baton has been selected for inclusion in Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

Hailing from a career spanning over two decades, Mr. Baton has established himself as a distinguished figure in the field of legal service. Currently serving as the co-chair of the Intellectual Property Group at Saul Ewing LLP, a full-service national law firm, he has demonstrated his expertise and leadership within the firm by representing pharmaceutical companies in high-profile patent litigation cases. Additionally, he is a member of the Saul Ewing patent litigation team, which was lauded among the top five "go-to" law firms in the field by Lex Machina in 2018.

Mr. Baton's legal journey initially commenced at LeBoeuf, Lamb, Greene & MacRae LLP, where he practiced from 2002 until 2007. Since embarking upon his career path, he has achieved several significant milestones, including a featured appearance in the "Decisions of Interest" by the New York Law Journal for pro bono service during a precedent-setting case, Hancock Associates v. Gomez. Additionally, he has been included on the list of "America's Leading Lawyers in Intellectual Property" by Chambers USA from 2019 to the present, on New Jersey Super Lawyers' "Top Intellectual Property Litigation Attorneys" in 2018, and in the "Rising Stars" list of New Jersey Super Lawyers from 2011 to 2012.

Building upon his professional achievements, Mr. Baton's educational background laid the foundation for his success. Though he initially sought a career in acting at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, he later received a Bachelor of Arts in English, summa cum laude, at Kean University. After composing the music for an Off-Broadway musical, he found himself drawn to the field of law, where he thought his innate sense of tenacity would make him an excellent litigator. Following this pivot, he earned a Juris Doctorate from the Seton Hall University School of Law with a concentration in intellectual property, where he was recognized as a Dean Scholar and served as an associate editor for what is now the Seton Hall Journal of Sports and Entertainment Law, as well as president of the Entertainment & Sports Law Society.

Mr. Baton's influence extends beyond his firm through active engagement with legal organizations, including service as a master in the John C. Lifland American Inn of Court and as a trustee for the Association of the Federal Bar of New Jersey. His commitment to good conduct in the field of law is also reflected by participation in his firm's ethics committee.

Outside of his demanding career, Mr. Baton dedicates time to philanthropic efforts and personal interests that enrich his life and community. As founder and president of Stad's Crabfest Inc., he leads efforts to support those affected by cancer. His passion for music is also evident, as he serves as a lead vocalist at his church. Furthermore, he is an avid supporter of local sports programs, as evidenced by his past role as president of the Westfield School Boosters Association.

Mr. Baton's personal life is marked by a love for golf, music, travel, culinary pursuits, and sports enthusiasm. With an eye toward future goals, he aims to enhance Saul Ewing LLP's reputation in intellectual property law by expanding its IP specialty groups and building its trade secrets practice while navigating emerging legal issues related to artificial intelligence, as well as continuing to grow his own portfolio within the firm.
