INTRODUCTION

Welcome to your exclusive first look at the 2019 rankings tables for World Trademark Review 1000 – The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals.

The WTR 1000 research directory, which focuses exclusively on trademark practices and practitioners, has firmly established itself as the definitive go-to resource for those seeking world-class legal trademark expertise. As with previous editions, to arrive at the 2019 rankings, WTR undertook an exhaustive qualitative research project to identify the firms and individuals that are deemed outstanding in this critical area of practice (an overview of the research process is available here).  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 positive peer and client feedback.

The full version of the 2019 publication will go live online early next year but, as a WTR subscriber, we are delighted to offer you access to the very latest law firm and individual practitioner rankings.
