World Trade Mark Review release 2020 rankings, recognising the firm’s leading individuals and ambitious European outlook.
WTR 1000 note the group’s ambitious growth plans; manifested by the opening of a new office in the Netherlands and expansion of the anti-counterfeiting practice.
The ranking shines a particular light on four of the practice group’s individuals: Carrollanne Lindley, Iain Stewart, Ryan Pixton and Jeffrey Parker.
Carrollanne Lindley and Iain Stewart are both listed in the Gold tier category: ‘They are first-class trademark attorneys with a similar breadth, which means that they can work on both prosecution and dispute resolution matters. They make you feel as if you are their only priority.’
A premier UK and EU trademark attorney
‘Iain Stewart is genuinely brilliant, both at managing complex portfolios and at fighting office actions. He is nothing short of a powerhouse of ideas and the absolute best of the best for global strategy. Our number-one, favourite attorney worldwide.’
Adored by the market
‘Carrollanne Lindley is quick witted, commercially savvy and always a pleasure to deal with. It makes no sense to use anyone else; her advice is commercial and the team she leads is great.’
A true internationalist
‘Ryan Pixton is rapidly establishing a reputation for himself as a true internationalist from his twin bases in London and Hilversum. Projects sent to him will always be well handled.’
Alongside Ryan in the Silver tier category, we’re extremely pleased WTR 1000 recognises Jeffrey Parker as a ‘brilliant, well-known sole practitioner’, ‘leveraging a remarkable 45 years’ experience to provide the finest brand strategy.’
Jeffrey joined Kilburn & Strode’s Trade mark practice as consultant in November 2019 (reported here)
On behalf of Kilburn & Strode and the Trade marks team, we thank WTR 1000 for this stellar review and congratulate everyone else in the ranking.
WTR 1000, now it its tenth edition, cements the guide’s position as the ‘definitive directory exclusively dedicated to identifying the world’s leading trademark legal services providers’.
