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 - Individuals
Boutique Simion & Baciu has made a real splash since its formation two years ago, with more than one rival singling it out as among the best for trademark litigation. The group is home to a mix of IP litigators and IP attorneys, all with their own individual sector specialisms; as a result, every angle is covered whatever predicament a client may face. Recent highlights include a comprehensive enforcement campaign for BMW encompassing oppositions and customs matters, as well as a battle in the Bucharest court. Spearheading this are Andreea Bende, a “top expert” who is “client oriented and determined to offer the best solutions”; and the “professional, skilled, meticulous, proactive and flexible” Ana-Maria Baciu. “With Ana-Maria, you can always trust that your problem is in good hands and that no detail will be omitted. Her problem-solving skills and IP expertise distinguish her from others and mark her out as one of the best.” Co-founder Cosmina Simion has a refined understanding of IP and gaming law, and has walked in the shoes of clients thanks to time spent in-house at a US company. Joining this trio in the WTR 1000 this year is Alexandra Rădulescu, who came aboard from DLA Piper in December 2020. Handling pre-litigation and contentious actions of all stripes with finesse, she has regulatory know-how in areas from pharmaceuticals to oil and gas, and also lends her talents to copyright, design and domain name issues.
