The Legal 500 UK 2015 has recently been published and we are delighted to announce that we have once again been recommended as a ‘Leading Firm‘ for our Trade Mark practice and ‘Top Tier’ for our Patent practice, with all of our partners receiving individual recommendations. The rankings are based on a series of criteria, with a focus on the bench strength of the team, and the consistency of quality of the individuals within the team.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our clients for providing such positive feedback during the interview stages. We are delighted with the fantastic comments we received in this year’s edition:
A.A. Thornton & Co.’s team ‘tailors its services to the demands of the client’, and gives ‘pragmatic and clear advice’. Ian Gill is ‘extremely articulate and clear in his communication’, Vanessa Lawrence is ‘a true shining star’, who has ‘exceptional knowledge of trade marks’ and delivers ‘commercially sensible solutions in terms of results and budget’. Rachel Havard is also recommended for her handling of a wide range of UK and international trade mark cases.
A.A. Thornton & Co. is ‘highly knowledgeable in the patent field’. Craig Turner handles contentious and non-contentious matters in the fields of chemistry, pharmaceutical and biotechnology, Mike Jennings heads the electrical engineering group and Martin Hedges specialises in automotive, electro-mechanical and mechanical engineering. In 2014, the team acted on a number of high-profile patent infringement and validity matters. Adrian Bennett, Lawrence King and Emily Cottrill are also highly recommended.
