The publication adds, “Its lawyers move heaven and earth to secure watertight trademark protection for diverse clients in the pharmaceutical, medical device, communications and high-technology domains. Its search offering is highly sought after, not least due to its cost-effectiveness and industry-targeted results; the set’s superb hit rate in contested matters inspires further confidence, as does its extensive network of foreign correspondents.”

For the fourth consecutive year, John DuPré, a Principal in the firm, has been selected in the Gold category for trademark prosecution and strategy.

John DuPré and Principal Susan Glovsky are both individually recognized in the Silver category for handling trademark enforcement and litigation matters.

“John gives clear, client-friendly advice based on a wealth of experience handling large portfolios. He can see round obstacles where no obvious solution presents itself. Using highly skilled paralegals and assistants, he manages things efficiently and with business concern. He is the very definition of a safe pair of hands.”

“Susan unambiguously and vigorously defends her clients and gives up very little to get maximum protection; at the same time, she encourages dialogue with other parties. She is deeply knowledgeable and has tons of practical experience.”

WTR identifies Gold level individuals as “those that attract the most positive comments from sources.” They are praised as the “best of the best” whose “success often hinges on reputations established over lengthy periods of time, something which enables them to secure the most high-profile, big-ticket work from the most prestigious of clients.”
