Kilburn & Strode is once again delighted to be ranked as a top-tier firm in this year’s World Trademark Review 1000.
The WTR 1000, now in its 11th year, is respected as an authoritative guide to the world’s leading IP practitioners. In its latest rankings, it praises Kilburn & Strode’s “superlative feedback from the market, which speaks to their consistent delivery of a pan-European service that proves transformative for recipients”.
Headquartered in the UK and the Netherlands, the firm provides a seamless European service to clients, both within the region and worldwide. Their domestic and international clients look to them as their strategic European advisers and the Hilversum (Netherlands) office, headed by Dutch partner Claudia Festen, further provides an integrated cross-border service in tandem with the London office.
The firm’s partners receive consistent praise for their work and commitment to clients.
Carrollanne Lindley and Iain Stewart maintain top tier once again as individual practitioners in the “prosecution and strategy” category.
"Carrollanne does a spectacular job for clients and can be counted on for the best, most sensible advice. She is tapped into the trademark world and exhibits the utmost professionalism in navigating it.”
Carrollanne is praised as “an inspiring mentor to associate Ben Scarfield", whose star, as WTR notes, “is firmly on the ascendant.”
The Netherlands and UK-based Iain Stewart is “the best of the best in the UK and EU. He delivers A-grade strategic advice that always pays off.”
Partner Ryan Pixton "stays calm under great pressure and has a gift for quickly synthesising information and giving clear, punchy updates and analysis within a commercial context. As a person, he is warm, charismatic and supportive. His successful US outreach has landed him some high-profile new clients.”
The guide describes how Kilburn & Strode made headlines with its hire of Jeffrey Parker as a consultant, to further strengthen its depth of talent: “Parker has an eminent reputation as an authority on brands and brings 45 years of experience to the firm.”
Congratulations to everyone else in this year’s ranking.
