Baker McKenzie continues to be the most widely ranked firm in the 2022 edition of the World Trademark Review 1000 (WTR 1000), which lists the world’s leading trademark professionals. The WTR ranked 92 individuals. These practitioners came from 38 offices in 33 countries located in all four regions in which the Firm operates.  

Global Chair of the Firm’s Intellectual Property, Data and Technology Practice, Anne-Marie Allgrove said: “We are very pleased to be the most widely ranked firm in this year's edition of WTR 1000 and the increased number of ranked practitioners is a testament to our global reach in this critical area of law."

"Our trend research last year predicted intellectual property as a key driver for deals in just about every sector. With that we are also seeing increased sophistication with the approach to brand protection from our clients across the globe which our team is uniquely placed to support," said Anne-Marie.

Now in its 12th year, the WTR 1000 shines a spotlight on the firms and individuals that are deemed outstanding in over 80 jurisdictions worldwide. “We have identified the leading law firms and agencies in the market, as the depth of expertise that a firm can offer beyond - and in support of - its star partners is an important factor for potential clients. Firms qualify for a listing on the basis of their depth of expertise, market presence and the level of work on which they are typically instructed,” the WTR said on its website.
