DCC once again ranked gold tier in the World Trademark Review 1000 2015
The WTR 1000 publication is the only definitive guide exclusively dedicated to identifying the world’s leading trademark legal services providers, identifying leading trademark law firms and individuals in over 70 global jurisdictions.
DCC is honoured to be among the leading firms holding such a highly ranked status, ranking gold tier for enforcement and litigation and highly recommended for prosecution and strategy.
WTR 1000 described the firm as follows:
Clients and competitors agree that Davies Collison Cave “has done everything to deserve the stellar reputation that it holds”. Few can match the depth of its 35-lawyer trademark department (11 of whom are partners). In filing volume, the firm has no equal; but it is the quality, not the quantity of their work that accounts for the inclusion of a remarkable nine individuals in the WTR 1000: “They meet and exceed the expectations of clients large and small.”
DCC is proud to have nine members of the Trade Mark Practice acknowledged as World leading trade mark professionals. The guide provided the following description on each of those that were recommended.
Michael Wolnizer manages the prosecution side and is known for his ability to give “concise, practical advice”. Marion Heathcote is a “stalwart of the profession”, whose portfolio strategies are “always sound and realistic”. With his “wealth of knowledge” Adam Sears acts in prosecution, opposition and dispute resolution matters. “Smart technical IP lawyer” Nick Holmes wins praise for his “creative problem solving”. Promising senior associates Fiona Brittain and Ian Drew continue to impress with their skilful portfolio management. On the contentious front, Chris Jordan runs the trademark litigation unit and also oversees a great deal of customs enforcement work, while John Hannebery had another year full of successful Federal Court actions on behalf of highly regarded brands. The eminent Trevor Stevens serves as a consultant to the firm and still “lives and breathes trademarks”, even in retirement. He is in the office regularly, dispensing advice to Davies’ next generation.
