Welcome to the online home of World Trademark Review 1000 2014

Now in its fourth year, World Trademark Review 1000 – The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals continues to expand both in its geographical coverage and in the detail of the research conducted. We believe that this is essential as we continue our mission to provide a unique, comprehensive and user-friendly guide to the trademark legal services market.

Published by World Trademark Review (WTR) – the world’s only independent multimedia publication dedicated exclusively to reporting on trademark issues – the WTR 1000 comprises in-depth jurisdiction-specific chapters which analyse the local market and identify the leading practitioners and firms in both the contentious and non-contentious spheres. The latter are presented in comprehensive listings, with separate tables of trademark attorneys included in specific jurisdictions (where appropriate, trademark agencies and barristers are also listed). The full methodology for the WTR 1000 research is outlined here. All of the individuals identified in this publication have been included because we received substantial positive feedback about them during our exhaustive qualification research process. In addition, when identifying the leading firms, factors such as depth of expertise, market presence and the level of work on which they are typically instructed were all taken into account.

Alongside the editorial, you will find profiles of some of the firms and individuals featured in the WTR 1000 listings. All those selected for listing in the WTR 1000 were offered the opportunity to publish a profile for a fee – some decided that they wished to do so, while others declined. It is important to stress that inclusion in the editorial is not linked to this – the research was conducted entirely independently of any commercial considerations.

In light of the guide’s continued expansion, for this latest edition we decided to reorganise the content to ensure that users can quickly access information on those regions and firms and individuals of greatest interest. Jurisdictions are now grouped by region: Asia-Pacific; Europe, Middle East and Africa; Latin and Central America; and United States and Canada. Individual attorney profiles appear alongside the relevant jurisdiction chapter, while firm profiles appear at the end of the regional section. A separate section features international firm profiles – that is, those with a presence spanning multiple regions – and we once again present a guide to the top trademark filers from across the globe.

The WTR 1000 is the only standalone directory to focus exclusively on trademark practices and practitioners, and our work does not stop here. If you have any feedback on this year’s findings or wish to participate in the research for the 2015 publication, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Mooted legislative changes in Estonia include the codification of IP law into a single statute and the removal of examination on relative grounds.
