The Firm, along with Michael R. Graham, have been recognized in World Trademark Review 1000’s inaugural edition. World Trademark Review 1000 is the world’s only independent multimedia publication dedicated exclusively to reporting on trademark issues for in-house and private practitioners internationally. It is designed to easily identify firms and individuals setting industry benchmarks for trademark legal services. Parent publication, World Trademark Review (WTR), conducted hundreds of interviews with trademark specialists, both private practice and in-house, in more than 50 key jurisdictions over a three-month period. Top-ranking finalists were selected as the firms and individuals that trademark professionals could turn to for unparalleled trademark services when seeking local and international legal partners.

"Very strong practitioner," Michael R. Graham, "adds a lot to this solid team," according to WTR sources. "He maintains a broad practice that has responded to current client demands by placing greater emphasis on the registration and commercial exploitation of marks. Given the firm’s overall technology and pharmaceutical-heavy client base, it is no surprise that the trademark practice is also active in these fields."
