WTR Research

The WTR 1000 focuses exclusively on trademark practice and has firmly established itself as the definitive 'go-to' resource for those seeking world-class legal trademark expertise.

Silver - Agencies

With 20 trademark specialists on deck, supported by administrative assistance from a further 20 skilled paralegals, agency Santarelli dispatches all instructions methodically, precisely and effectively. As well as routine trademark registration, it plays a hand in more complex matters, such as IP-related M&A and rebranding mandates for the likes of hotel operator Accor. Handling this matter was Nathalie Rey, who brings valuable in-house insight to her broad trademark practice. She makes her debut in the WTR 1000 this year alongside fellow newcomer Perrine Waendendries, who is credited as “commercially minded, easy to work with, pragmatic, flexible and always client oriented, even in times of stress”. Also on deck are Fabrice Pigeaux and Eric Le Bihan. The “knowledgeable and experienced” Pigeaux is intimately familiar with the Chinese market; while practice leader Le Bihan regularly coordinates infringement disputes across the Middle East and is described as “meticulous and sharp, with great attention to detail”.
