"Baker McKenzie's trademark division may make most of the headlines, but patent owners are consistently delighted by the service on offer at this innovative firm. The global titan achieves the rare distinction of having practitioners ranked in three continents - South America, Asia and Europe, where the Moscow contingent continue to knock it out of the park on a range of hard IP briefs. Whatever the legal regime, companies can rest assured that their instructions will be handled in a way that maximises the value of their crown-jewel assets."
"They do a good job of cultivating some really good people, and we're able to reap the benefits of that. We wouldn't be using them all over the place if that weren't true!"
