Home / News & Events / AA Thornton partners recommended in the World Trademark Review 2018
We are thrilled to announce that Partners and Chartered Trademark Attorneys Ian Gill and Vanessa Lawrence, have been, once again, recommended in the 2018 edition of the World Trademark Review (WTR) 1000: The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals, in the “prosecution and strategy” category. They also received the following client comments:
“Trademark and design pro Ian Gill has technical and tactical acumen in abundance and can set large international portfolios in good stead. In his role as partnership chair, he has set high standards of efficiency – and cultivated a vibrant atmosphere within the firm. Vanessa Lawrence is another accomplished partner with a deft touch on global portfolios. Gaining an intimate familiarity with her clients’ businesses and industries is part of her modus operandi and “she provides pragmatic and commercial solutions” as a result.”
Our trademark practice also continues to be highly praised in the 2018 publication, with WTR 1000 commenting:
“Foreign associates really value their relationship with AA Thornton, calling it “a fantastic resource which you can rely on totally for trademark matters in Europe”. Peers are also impressed, noting that “it does a top job defending its clients’ positions”. The long-established – but forward-thinking – outfit can render any trademark service, and has a wealth of enforcement and commercialisation know-how to complement its unassailable prosecution and portfolio management credentials.”
The WTR 1000 reveals the leading national and international trademark practitioners from around the globe. As well as illustrating the depth of expertise available to brand owners as they seek to protect their brands, the guide serves as the definitive tool to locating the best trademark partners worldwide. Individual practitioners, law firms and trademark attorney practices qualify for inclusion in the WTR 1000 on receiving sufficient positive feedback from market sources. As with previous editions, to arrive at the 2018 rankings, World Trademark Review undertook an exhaustive qualitative research project to identify the firms and individuals that are deemed outstanding in this critical area of practice. When identifying the leading firms, factors such as depth of expertise, market presence and the level of work on which they are typically instructed were all taken into account, alongside positive peer and client feedback.
