As an intellectual property law firm, we are proud to have been identified amongst the world’s leading national and international trademark practices with the publication of the WTR1000, 2019 edition. The guide serves as the one of the best tools at the disposal of those seeking to locate the best trademark partners across the globe.
The WTR 1000 only permits inclusion for individual practitioners, law firms and trademark attorney practices if they receive sufficient positive feedback from market sources. The research process is extensive, and was conducted over a four-month period by a team of full-time analysts and involved over 1,500 face-to-face and telephone interviews with trademark specialists across the globe.
Contentious IP work and litigation are described as the specialties of the Waterfront intellectual property law team, who are delighted to have been listed for the first time as a whole practice area this year. Their service is described as ‘hands-on’ and ‘highly cost effective’, along with mentions of a number of client wins for the team. Matthew Harris is particularly commended for his ‘strategic creativity’ and described as one of the best litigators in the United Kingdom.
The WTR 1000 is published in January 2019, with an online edition available via https://www.worldtrademarkreview.com/. To learn more about the research process, including the schedule, interview and submissions, you may visit this page.
