The Trade Marks team at Ashfords LLP has been recognised as one of the UK’s leading trade mark practices in the WTR 1000 2021.

Just released, the WTR 1000 eleventh edition is the only guide exclusively dedicated to identifying the world’s leading trade mark legal services providers. The guide serves as the definitive tool to locating the best trademark advisers in the world.

Through an extensive research process, conducted by a team of highly qualified, full-time analysts, the publication identifies the leading trade mark law firms and individuals in over 80 global jurisdictions. Individual practitioners, law firms and trade mark attorney practices qualify for inclusion in the WTR 1000 solely on receiving sufficient positive feedback from market sources. It therefore serves as a one-stop source of reference for anyone seeking trade mark legal services.

The team was recognised for its “strategic, comprehensive and easy to follow” advice for clients. The guide also ranked partners Carl Steele and Clare Jackman as leading individuals in trade mark prosecution and strategy work.

Carl Steele, Partner and Head of the Intellectual Property team at Ashfords LLP said: “We are honoured and humbled to be recognised by World Trademark Review 1000 as leading trade mark legal service providers in the UK. WTR is an esteemed guide. We are delighted to read that market sources have confirmed that we are providing our clients with advice that is clear, strategic and rooted in reality, which is incredibly important to us and our clients.”
