In November, the 2018 rankings tables for the World Trademark Review 1000 – The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals were exclusively released to subscribers. Today we are pleased to announce that the full version is now available online. Free to view, it analyses the local trademark legal services markets in 70 jurisdictions worldwide, profiling the firms and individuals singled out as leaders in their respective fields.
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 2018 rankings, World Trademark Review 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.
To allow for easy navigation, the results (across 70 jurisdictions, with the United States section boasting 18 state-specific chapters) are presented in bands – gold, silver and bronze – to reflect the depth of expertise, market presence and level of work on which firms are typically instructed. The publication therefore serves as a one-stop source of reference for anyone seeking trademark legal services.
Hard copies of this year’s edition are being mailed out to World Trademark Review subscribers. In the meantime, the results are free to view online. To access the latest edition of the WTR 1000, please click here.
