We are pleased to announce that Osler’s Intellectual Property Group has been recognized once again in the World Trademark Review 1000’s rankings of leading trademark practitioners globally. Six of our lawyers are also singled out for their legal expertise and client service excellence in various areas of trademark practice.
“High-end disputes and IP-rich transactions are meat and drink to the Osler trademark team. The corporate bent of this full-service firm means that brand owners’ business demands are as important to its trademark lawyers as they are to the clients themselves,” to quote this year’s editors.
Congratulations are extended to Glen Bloom, John Cotter, Tara James, Kelly Moffatt, Lee Webster and Donna White who have all been recognized as leading practitioners in their areas of practice.
Of note this year, Donna White and Lee Webster were in the gold band for prosecution and strategy again. “Well regarded in prosecution,” Donna White covers everything from national and international filings and strategy to licensing, internet and domain name issues, enforcement and labelling,” write the editors. “Glen Bloom is a distinguished figure in Canadian trademark law and past president of the Intellectual Property Institute of Canada,” they add.
Published by World Trademark Review – the world’s only independent multimedia publication dedicated exclusively to reporting on trademark issues – the WTR 1000 is comprised of in-depth jurisdiction-specific chapters which analyse the local market and identify the leading practitioners and firms in both the contentious and non-contentious spheres. The latter are presented in comprehensive listings, with separate tables of trademark attorneys included in specific jurisdictions.
