Bird & Bird's international trade mark team holds its own in the latest WTR 1000 rankings


For the 7th year running, Bird & Bird have 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. 

We are ranked in 17 countries, across Europe and Asia-Pacific, while 36 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 reflects on our respected position in the market stating: "It does first-rate work for blue-chip clients across all offices – and in seamless fashion. However, one of its chief distinctions is its thought leadership in the international community; many of its lawyers elevate the global trademark discussion, which is good not only for all IP stakeholders, but for clients, too".

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.
