Managing and protecting intellectual property has become increasingly complex for global companies, which often have huge IP portfolios and operations in multiple jurisdictions with varied IP laws and levels of enforcement. Rapid technological advancements have enabled infringers to become more sophisticated, and the rise of intellectual property as a main driver of mergers and acquisitions has made developing strategies to protect these assets even more important.
Baker McKenzie’s intellectual property practice is consistently recognized around the world for our exceptional quality in a range of intellectual property matters.
We retained our top position in Chambers Global for the ninth consecutive year - one of only two firms to be Band-1 ranked in Chambers 2017. Thirty-seven of our lawyers also earned plaudits for their strong IP practice in various jurisdictions around the world.
In its editorial, Chambers Global cites the Firm's "unparalleled global trade mark registration and enforcement practice" and "strong reputation in anti-counterfeiting matters, with standout practice in emerging markets." The publication also highlights the Firm's "increasing focus on hard IP matters, and benefits from the excellent reputation of copyright specialists in the London office."
