Leading law firm Blake Morgan is celebrating after being named in the 2022 World Trademark Review (WTR) 1000, reflecting the team’s extensive expertise in trade marks.
The firm received two bronze rankings for its work in enforcement and litigation, as well as prosecution and strategy.
In addition, Partner Jill Bainbridge was ranked silver for her work and expertise in enforcement and litigation. Associate and Chartered Trade Mark Attorney Ben Evans received his first WTR 1000 ranking, securing bronze for his work in prosecution and strategy.
The WTR 1000 focuses exclusively on trade mark practice and has firmly established itself as the definitive ‘go-to’ resource for those seeking world-class legal trade mark expertise.
Commenting on the 2022 rankings, The World Trademark Review 1000, said:
Blake Morgan has the expertise and bench strength of a large firm; but when dealing with them, you would believe that you were dealing with a boutique. As a whole, the level of service is head and shoulders above many other UK firms.
“Though its clientele is diverse, it is best known for its partnerships with companies in the charity, retail and leisure and public sectors. Strategy and clearance advice for Nokia, Oyster Yachts and cosmetics brand Feelunique, and brand enforcement and oppositions activity for the likes of sports retailer Wiggle and paddleboard manufacturer Red Paddle Co, are just the disclosable tip of the iceberg in terms of the high-profile matters on its plate this year.
“Dynamic duo Jill Bainbridge and Ben Evans are jointly described as “professional, friendly, down-to-earth, responsive and pragmatic”. “Both are a pleasure to work with and have consistently produced quality work and obtained favourable results.” Bainbridge heads up the trademark prosecution team and specialises in issues with a cross-border element; while dual-qualified trademark attorney and solicitor Evans is a social media specialist who dispenses sage brand protection advice and puts in polished performances in IP and defamation litigation.”
Jill Bainbridge, Partner at Blake Morgan, said: “It’s always fantastic to see the team’s work recognised and these rankings are testament to the exceptional service Blake Morgan provides in this specialism. I’m incredibly proud of our team and would like to thank them for their efforts; with particular congratulations to Ben for his achievements.”
