February 1, 2019 – Winthrop & Weinstine is pleased to announce that its Trademark & Brand Protection practice has once again been recognized as among the best by World Trademark Review 1000, a unique, user-friendly and comprehensive guide to the trademark legal services market. For 2019, the editors noted that “few [firms] bring the sort of wider industry knowledge to the table that Winthrop & Weinstine does,” and that it “is there for its clients – not just at the filing stage, but from the moment new ideas are born; it understands every aspect of branding, from start to finish.” In addition, the publication acknowledged Stephen Baird’s “obvious zeal for trademarks” and recognized him as a “time-honoured strategist with creative flair and a practical mindset, unafraid to put a hand to the tiller, as opposed to just reciting the law or giving options.”

Now in its ninth year, the World Trademark Review 1000 remains the only standalone publication to recommend individual practitioners and their firms exclusively in the trademark field, and identifies the leading players in over 70 key jurisdictions globally. To research the market, WTR 1000 conducted face-to-face and telephone interviews and exchanged correspondence over a four-month period with hundreds of lawyers, attorneys and their clients involved with trademarks; they also gathered written submissions from firms detailing their recent activity in the field.
