World Trademark Review 1000 2017 refers to DCC as a “Perennial Leader”
For the seventh year running Davies Collison Cave (DCC) has been ranked gold tier for enforcement and litigation, and highly recommended for prosecution and strategy in the World Trademark Review (WTR) 1000 2017.
WTR 1000 made the following statement:
A perennial leader in the filing statistics, Davies Collison Cave nonetheless puts the emphasis squarely on quality; its heavy workload belies the attentive care that it affords to each client. Already imposing in size, it expanded further in 2015 with the launch of a Singapore office. The premier outfit shines on everything from registrations to multimillion-dollar infringement suits for some of the world’s most recognisable brands.
Nine members of DCC’s trade marks team were recommended in the 2017 guide as World Leading Trade Mark Professionals, here’s what WTR 1000 had to say about those who were included:
“Adam Sears spearheads the trademark practice. He is a fixture of the community, having previously chaired the International Trademark Association (INTA) Harmonisation Committee and was sub-committee chair of the Legislation and Regulation Committee for Southeast Asia. Also heavily involved with INTA is Michael Wolnizer, an authority on the confluence of trademark law and cyberspace. International portfolio management is the crux of Marion Heathcote’s practice; she is especially well attuned to issues unique to Asia-Pacific. Meanwhile, Nick Holmes is a font of knowledge on Australian and New Zealand trademark matters and draws admiration for his “sound commercial advice”. Another adaptable practitioner, Ian Drew has a flair for tackling international registrations. Chris Jordan fronts the contentious group and provides penetrating strategies for businesses defending their intangible assets. Sharp IP litigation is also John Hannebery’s metier. Talent at the firm spans across the ranks, with senior associate Fiona Brittain making waves for her non-contentious nous, while luminary Trevor Stevens brings much to the table as a judicious consultant to the team.”
The seventh edition of WTR 1000 further cements the guide’s reputation as the definitive directory exclusively dedicated to identifying the world’s leading trademark legal services providers. This year’s publication features more than 80 countries, analysing local trademark legal services markets and profiling the firms and individuals singled out as leaders in their respective fields.
