McDermott Ranked Among Premier Trademark Firms by World Trademark Review Fifth Year in a Row


WASHINGTON, D.C. (February 4, 2014)—International law firm McDermott Will & Emery LLP and nine of the Firm’s partners have been named among the world’s best trademark firms and practitioners in the fifth annual World Trademark Review 1000 (WTR 1000) produced by World Trademark Review.

McDermott and nine partners received high marks and outstanding accolades from commentators, clients and peers, in the 2015 WTR 1000. For the fifth year in a row, McDermott maintained high rankings for the Firm’s overall strength in trademark matters, (including enforcement and litigation, prosecution and strategy) both nationally and internationally, as well as in the District of Columbia Metro Area, California, Illinois and London. The publication highlights McDermott’s “dedication to the highest standards of client service…” and “smart, fair, thorough, tough when necessary [attorneys]…” and notes that the Firm “maintains a robust international soft IP practice catering to companies in every conceivable industry sector.”

The nine McDermott practitioners recognized for their work are Jorge Arciniega (Los Angeles), Lynne Boisineau (Orange County), John Dabney (Washington, D.C.), Margaret Duncan (Chicago), Richard Kim (Washington, D.C.), Joanne Ludovici (Washington, D.C.), Rohan Massey (London), Jennifer Mikulina (Chicago) and Robert Zelnick (Washington, D.C.). Highlighting McDermott’s strong reputation in the global trademark field, the rankings are based on written submissions and extensive interviews with practitioners and clients. World Trademark Review 1000 remains the only standalone publication to spotlight individual practitioners and their firms exclusively in the trademark field.

The WTR 1000 is produced by World Trademark Review (WTR), the only independent publication dedicated exclusively to reporting on trademark issues, trademark practices and trademark practitioners. The WTR 1000 rankings are based on written submissions and extensive interviews with practitioners and clients.
