Bird & Bird named a leading international firm in World Trademark Review's guide to trade mark practice

22 January 2015

For the fifth year running, Bird & Bird has been recognised as one of the world's top firms in World Trademark Review's (WTR) guide to international trade mark practice, the WTR 1000.

Our offices are ranked in 17 jurisdictions across Europe and Asia, while 29 of our practitioners are highlighted for their exceptional trade mark expertise. We also feature in the directory's list of leading international firms, reflecting our very strong presence on the global stage.

The guide's commentary states: "Going the extra mile is standard for the firm, which can routinely be found in leadership roles on projects that promote the development of trade mark law, policy and practice internationally". 

Rankings are based on more than 1,300 interviews with lawyers, attorneys and clients involved with trade marks conducted by WTR’s research team.

The guide is a popular tool for brand owners to use in considering their choice of external counsel and for law firms entering markets where they do not have trade mark practitioners on the ground.
