Bronze - Firms

The team at Barack Ferrazzano Kirschbaum & Nagelberg knows all about the business of intellectual property and has become a go-to particularly for luxury goods companies such as LVMH, as well as others who depend on strong brands for business success. Covering all the bases for clients as they procure, protect, enforce and monetise intangible assets globally is a superb line-up comprised of Scott Slavick, Wendi Sloane, Thomas Williams, Sharon Calhoun and Thomas Gniot, who have more than 100 years’ collective experience. More than 50 of those belong to Slavick and Sloane, who set the standard for the IP division; Slavick distinguishes himself as a trademark strategist, as does Sloane, who also litigates with aplomb. Another tried and tested litigator, Williams benefits the group with his expert knowledge of social media issues. Calhoun litigates IP and commercial cases with confidence and poise but has a well-developed toolkit for creating IP value. Gniot is an excellent team player and, thinking ahead with enforcement in mind, makes light work of complex prosecution briefs. A Polish speaker, he has recently been acting for Polmos Zyrardow in securing trademark and copyright protection for the Belvedere Vodka brand.
