We are thrilled to announce that Partner Ian Gill and Consulting Attorney Vanessa Lawrence, have been, once again, recommended in the 2019 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:
“Partnership chair Gill is a technically accomplished attorney who coordinates worldwide portfolios with finesse; the same can be said for Lawrence; she is a commercially minded practitioner who also enjoys rolling up her sleeves and getting stuck in to anti-counterfeiting matters.”
Our trademark practice also continues to be highly praised in the 2019 publication, with WTR 1000 commenting:
“AA Thornton renders tailored trademark and IP services to a distinguished clientele.(…)Attesting to a practice that is in fine fettle, the firm made a raft of partner promotions in late 2018; it has plenty of up-and-coming talent, but also market leaders in individuals such as Ian Gill and Vanessa Lawrence.”
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 2019 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.
