Marks & Clerk’s trade marks team has once again been recognised by World Trade Mark Review 1000 (WTR1000), the leading directory of trade mark practice globally.  Marks & Clerk was ranked by WTR1000 in England & Wales, Scotland, Luxembourg, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore.

In England & Wales WTR 1000 noted that the Marks & Clerk team is “a force to be reckoned with in the brands space” with mention made of Esther Gottschalk and John Ferdinand. Also highlighted was Marks & Clerk’s new Head of Trade Marks, Tom Farrand.

North of the border in Scotland, Campbell Newell was highly recommended by WTR1000, with the research mentioning his delivering of “excellent results”. Aidan Clarke was also noted for his ability to “get the best job done on tight timescales”.

Commenting on the results of its research, which included interviews with numerous trade mark holders across the UK, WTR1000 also mentioned Marks & Clerk’s seamless integration of both intellectual property attorney and solicitor teams. The research noted Marks & Clerk’s ability to provide “panoramic solutions for any IP conundrum” as a result of having litigation and prosecution practices.

Marks & Clerk’s solicitor team specifically was praised for being “completely at home when tackling trademark litigation at the IPEC and the High Court – not to mention administrative proceedings in the UK and EU IP offices”. Researchers also recognised Kirsten Gilbert for being “prompt and precise, and able to explain strategy in ways that are easy to comprehend”. 

The news follows the most recent research by the Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys which revealed Marks & Clerk to be the top trade mark filer in both the UK and the EU.
