Gains 13 Lawyer Rankings in WTR 1000 2021 compared to 2020

Baker McKenzie continues to be recognized in the 2021 edition of the World Trademark Review 1000 (WTR 1000), which lists the world’s leading trademark professionals. Described by WTR as "the most widely ranked firm in the WTR1000," the Firm saw an increase in high level rankings from the previous year, with 93 individuals ranked compared to 80 in 2020, and 50 jurisdictions ranked compared to 32 in 2020. These practitioners came from 38 offices in 33 countries located in all four regions in which the Firm operates. Gold band status, indicating the crème de la crème, was awarded to a total of 50 of our jurisdictions and individuals.

Global Chair of the Firm’s IP, Data and Technology Practice, Anne-Marie Allgrove said: “I am very proud of our team who have continued to be recognised by industry players and clients alike. The high number of individuals ranked demonstrates the breadth and depth of our team globally. We offer our clients an unparalleled global platform to protect their brands in a very challenging economic climate and disrupted business landscape." 

"Our ability to support our clients from both an advisory and a contentious perspective is bolstered by our strategy to continuously strengthen our team with experienced practitioners who not only have a commercial mindset, but also have sectorial expertise to advise our clients." said Anne-Marie.

This year, WTR 1000’s 10th year, the research has been expanded to increase the guide’s scope, searching for the trademark industry’s best in over 80 jurisdictions worldwide. “When identifying the leading firms, factors such as depth of expertise, market presence and the level of work on which they are typically instructed were all taken into account, alongside positive peer and client feedback,” the WTR said on its website.
