“Sheridan Ross is a very dependable firm. It is highly proficient at handling matters before the USPTO and TTAB and turns work around quickly.” The eminent regional boutique benefits immeasurably from superb leadership provided by Miriam Trudell, Sabrina Stavish, Sarah Schneider and Pamela Hirschman, who have collectively spent over 80 years in the game. Coming in for particular praise, Trudell is “extremely responsive and provides practical and meaningful advice at a reasonable cost. She is always conscious of clients’ business objectives and strategically advances matters forward. Experienced in disputes, she recognises the benefits of negotiated settlements and gets highly favourable results”. Stavish – the most seasoned member of the group – is acknowledged by contemporaries as a “highly persuasive trademark attorney, tough adversary and amazing lawyer all round”. She provides essential support to A-listers including household-name pharmacy and retail brands, working alongside Schneider in a very effective pairing. Schneider designs robust brand strategies which never fall apart whatever challenges her clients might face. Former USPTO examiner Hirschman performs flawlessly in prosecution and contentious administrative proceedings; well rounded in the practice, she also has a flair for the fine print of cross-border licensing agreements and other transactions.
