This year’s Global Leaders unveiled

WTR has today unveiled the 2023 edition of WTR Global Leaders. Now in its fifth year, the guide brings together the world’s foremost law firm and corporate trademark experts to share their insight, experience and perspectives to the benefit of the wider community.

WTR Global Leaders draws on our market-leading research projects – the WTR 1000 and the WTR 300 – to identify the best of the best in trademark practice.

This year, industry experts from over 40 leading law firms and in-house IP departments offer their takeaways on the biggest trends affecting the trademark landscape, as well as the course of progression in the practice of intellectual property.

Our shining lights reflect on the latest legal and technological developments in China, Europe, India and the United States to offer their expert opinion on the future of trademarks in these and other major jurisdictions around the globe.

Brand professionals at LEGO, Mars, Polaroid and Rivian are among the corporate elite who share their lived experiences to overcome the unique – as well as the all-too-common – issues that arise in their distinct industries. Meanwhile, 2023 INTA president and deputy general counsel, chief IP and brand counsel at Rotary International Jomarie Fredericks reflects on what makes an effective leader and the relationship between intellectual property and the media, among other things.

Unpicking topics ranging from platform liability to DEI, brand protection in the metaverse to USPTO pendency times, this year’s guide provides expert analysis and strategic know-how from those at the top of their game.
