Dallas – The law firm of Thompson & Knight LLP is pleased to announce its inclusion in the ninth 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.
Thompson & Knight received a silver ranking. The directory states, “Thompson & Knight is constantly looking for ways to enhance the value of its trademark advice – an attitude that has, for example, led to the development of a top-drawer cross-office social media and advertising practice. More recently, the ensemble has assiduously cultivated its data privacy and cybersecurity capabilities, which all makes for a well-rounded service.”
Partner and Intellectual Property Practice Leader Max Ciccarelli is recognized as “the firm’s lynchpin in Texas;” the directory describes him as “a masterful trial lawyer whose advocacy skills have been sharpened to a fine point as a result of diverse experience encompassing patent, trademark, trade dress, copyright, and unfair competition litigation.” Intellectual Property Associate Craig Carpenter is described as “exceptionally knowledgeable, fast, and efficient” and is cited by the directory as “a key name to note.”
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.
