Our trade marks group has again received a top ranking, citing our excellent client service and straight-talking advice in the UK World Trademark Review 1000 2019 (WTR).
We would particularly like to congratulate our partners in the trade mark team. Carrollanne Lindley, Iain Stewart and Ryan Pixton, who have all been praised individually, “form a dream team and bring inspiring leadership to a growing group.”
“Carrollanne is someone you can give complex matters to without hesitation because she is technically excellent. She offers really good strategic and commercial advice and is fun and entrepreneurial.”
“Iain is easy to partner with thanks to his practical and commercial approach. He is generous with his time and is always looking for ways to add value.” As one US associate proffers: “Iain is the best barometer for how things may go in Europe, and just generally in the world; he is great to use as a strategic sounding board when you’re making big global decisions. He has an excellent and sophisticated sense of humour too.”
“Ryan is a fantastic trademark attorney – he delivers thorough, on-point advice on time. He’s also a really nice guy and great at building close relationships with clients.”
Regarded as thought leaders, Stewart and Pixton “travel far and wide to deliver lectures on the effect of Brexit on European trademarks and Lindley has taken to the podium in several US locations, as well as Japan and South Korea, to speak on European IP strategy.”
The publication notes the firm’s move to a new premises in London, with new agile working practices and technology to promote efficiency, knowledge-sharing, collaboration and flexibility. “The change has given the firm serious momentum moving into 2019. However, the reasons for which it is popular have not changed, these include exceptional proficiency in handling global trademark portfolios and expertise in administrative disputes.”
