DALLAS — Thompson & Knight LLP is pleased to announce its inclusion in the 10th edition of the World Trademark Review 1000: The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals (“WTR 1000”), the only standalone research directory to focus exclusively on trademark practices and practitioners.
The directory states, “Thompson & Knight is wholeheartedly recommended for its proficiency in contentious and non-contentious trademark work.” It also mentioned “the team acts aggressively and creatively and gets cases trial-ready fast, ratcheting up the pressure on opponents so that disputes get resolved quickly and extra-judicially.”
Partner and Intellectual Property Practice Leader Max Ciccarelli is described as “a motivational leader of the IP group” and “an excellent option for companies who want to draw lines in the sand and put a stop to those encroaching on their brands.” Of Counsel Herbert J. Hammond is described as “a veteran litigator and seasoned alternative dispute resolution pro.” Both Mr. Ciccarelli and Mr. Hammond share descriptions as “experts on trademark, copyright, patent and unfair competition law” according to the directory. Intellectual Property Associate Craig Carpenter is described as “cultivating a great reputation for his understanding of social media issues.”
WTR 1000 conducted interviews with hundreds of trademark lawyers and their clients, and also gathered written submissions from firms detailing recent activity in the field. Only those who receive substantial positive feedback from the market are selected for inclusion. When identifying the leading firms, factors such as depth of expertise, market presence, and the level of work on which they are typically instructed are all taken into account.
