AA Thornton is delighted to announce that we have once again been recommended by the Legal 500 UK, maintaining “Leading Firm” status for both patents and trade marks in the recently published Legal 500 UK 2014.
The Legal 500 UK series is widely acknowledged as the world’s largest legal referral guide, with more than 250,000 corporate counsel being surveyed and interviewed globally each year.
In this year’s publication we were very pleased to see 7 of our partners receiving special recommendations in their respective practice areas:
“At AA Thornton, the ‘highly regarded’ Emily Cottrill and Craig Turner successfully defended an opposition to a European patent on behalf of Halliburton Energy Services. Mike Jennings specialises in patent prosecution and oppositions, and advises on a range of technologies including electrical and computer-related inventions. Lawrence King was promoted to the partnership in 2013.”
“AA Thornton handles all aspects of the trade mark registration process, and has particular expertise in the fashion sector. Ian Gill successfully defended Paul Smith Group Holdings in relation to a French registered design infringement case. Vanessa Lawrence is ‘remarkable in her knowledge’, and Rachel Havard is also recommended.”
Commenting on our listing, patent partner Mike Jennings said:
“We are delighted to hear that most of our Partners were recommended by clients again this year, when contacted by researchers for the Legal 500. We are very focussed on delivering the best possible client service while helping each client to achieve their commercial objectives, and so client satisfaction is a very good measure of our success.”
