October 19, 2017

The 2017 Legal 500 rankings have been announced and Swindell & Pearson is delighted to be listed as one of the UK’s top intellectual property firms with both our patents and trade mark practices receiving praise. In addition, several of our attorneys were also specifically recommended by their clients for their work.

In our patent department, Paul Higgin was highlighted as someone who “brings sanity and a path forward to a sometimes chaotic and constantly changing landscape”. Martin Terry was recommended for his ability to provide “excellent, professional, and timely service” and Robert Sales and Scott Harrison were recommended for being “very knowledgeable of the patent system”.

In the trade mark department, Kieron Taylor was recommended for having “an overall excellent grasp of trade mark matters in the UK and the EU as a whole” and as being able to “provide well-rounded advice when required”. Also in the team, Nick Womsley and Katy Fuggle were praised for being “very good at communicating legal terminology into easily understood English and explain everything clearly and precisely, without ambiguity”. Robert Sales was also recommended by his clients for his work in helping them with trade mark matters.

The Legal 500 rankings are an annual publication of leading law firms across regions and sectors. The research is based on feedback from over 250,000 clients worldwide, submissions from law firms and interviews with leading private practice lawyers by a team of researchers who hold significant experience in the legal market. We’d like to thank all of our clients, our colleagues, and our friends for taking the time to speak so highly of our firm and helping us to achieve our rankings and recommendations.
