WTR 1000 Research

This year, World Trademark Review will be conducting in-depth research for the thirteenth edition of its major, unique publication, WTR 1000: The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals. This guide will feature lists of the leading trademark practitioners and firms in over 80 jurisdictions around the world.

Research for the next edition will begin in April 2023 and conclude in July 2023, with the publication officially launched at the beginning of 2024.

Why you should participate

The trademark legal market is becoming increasingly competitive; in the most recent research cycle, more firms engaged in the process than ever before to set themselves apart in a crowded field. By providing us with insight on your trademark practice through the submission and interview, it increases your chances of:

  • Appearing in the rankings
  • Being accurately positioned on the tables
  • Having more of your leading individuals selected for inclusion
  • Having a more detailed and informative write-up

How to participate

Firms participate in our research by providing written submissions and client contact details for reference purposes – and by making leading trademark practice representatives available for interviews.

Submissions and interviews are used by the research team to gain insights into the leading trademark practices; we are keen to learn about the clients firms work with, the nature of the matters they undertake, the sectors they are working in, their unique selling points and the qualities and attributes of their leading individuals and future leaders.

WTR is using a proprietary survey tool to enable firms to upload their submissions securely. We have taken a security-led approach to designing this tool with the confidentiality of your data as our primary consideration. Collecting the information in this way will allow us to better analyse your firm’s practice and accurately reflect it in our analysis. Firms will require a personalised hyperlink and password to the secure submission form which, if not already provided, can be obtained from the research editor.
