Trade Marks Company

We’re WTR 1000 recommended!

February 15, 2018

Swindell & Pearson is delighted to announce that we’ve been recommended in the 2018 edition of the World Trademark Review 1000 - The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals.

Our firm was praised for its “client care” and ability to “create and drive IP value”. Nick Womsley, Head of the Trade Mark Team was commended for his leadership whilst Trade Mark Attorney Kieron Taylor was highlighted as someone who “works tirelessly for his clients and is utterly dedicated”.

It’s an excellent endorsement for our trade mark practice and follows on from the team’s success in the Legal 500 law firm ranking directory at the end of the 2017 in which Nick and Kieron were also recommended.

Nick commented: “I was delighted to learn that we have been recommended by the WTR 1000. My team works exceptionally hard year round to deliver exceptional client care, so it’s particularly pleasing to have been recognised for this. As the WTR noted, our team is compact but we’re very experienced across all trade mark matters”.

The WTR 1000 is a research directory, described as having firmly established itself as the definitive ‘go-to’ resource for those seeking world-class legal trademark expertise.

The full comment from the WTR is below:

Swindell & Pearson has a relatively compact trademark team comprising seven-fee earners but, packed with experience, it knows what client care is all about and what it takes to create and drive IP value. Whilst the squad is active in the High Court and in IPEC, it also offers wide-ranging support and, as testament to its strategic nous, is often called in to guide clients on the origination of marks before prosecution steps are taken. A deft handler of complex trademark portfolios, Nicholas Womsley is a top-class leader of the team. Particular kudos also goes to Kieron Taylor, a “punctual, accurate, knowledgeable, reasonable and upfront trademark attorney who thinks outside the box”. “He works tirelessly for his clients and is utterly dedicated”.
