“Strategic” “Creative” and “Practical” - High praise for the trade mark team
The firm’s partners continue to receive high accolades for their work:
Once again, Iain Stewart and Carrollanne Lindley maintain top tier as individual practitioners in the “prosecution and strategy” category.
Dividing his time between the UK and Netherlands, Iain Stewart is considered as the “go-to attorney in the UK and EU for both contentious and non-contentious matters. I can say with confidence that he is my most consistently effective foreign associate worldwide. Iain is pragmatic, creative and a joy to work with on difficult problems. He is a cut above the rest."
Carrollanne Lindley is described as “insightful, experienced, well connected and is a client magnet. She is always on point and is great to work with.” WTR have also praised Carrollanne for her work alongside Partner Ryan Pixton. The pair “recently were successful in defending a number of revocation actions for non-use.”
Ryan Pixton is noted as doing “a great job of managing UK and EU portfolios. He is a true professional and a pleasure to work with.”
Since joining the firm in 2021, Rowena Tolley has proven to be an excellent addition to the team. Rowena is admired for being “an amazing attorney. She is commercial, practical, thorough, knowledgeable and is a pleasure to work with. Rowena also has excellent client care and people skills, coupled with extensive expertise in trademarks. She is the best of the best.”
Consultant Jeffrey Parker is also recognised for the exemplary service he provides as the WTR highlights his “personal, solution-driven approach to matters”.
Congratulations to everyone who has been featured in this year’s ranking.
