Beck Greener Ranked as Silver Tier Firm in WTR 1000

February 2020

We are delighted to announce that Beck Greener has been recognised as a Silver Tier firm in the 2020 edition of the World Trademark Review (WTR) 1000: The World's Leading Trademark Professionals. The WTR 1000 reveals the leading national and international trademark practitioners from around the world. Three Beck Greener trade mark attorneys (Ian Bartlett, Duncan Morgan and Rowland Buehrlen) have also been highlighted as trade mark experts within the guide for the second year running. 

The WTR 1000 writes:

“Beck Greener’s ability to dig deep in trademark cases while strategically manoeuvring clients around any looming disputes is truly spectacular. With a raft of patrons including PwC Legal, the Estée Lauder Group, MPL Communications Ltd (Sir Paul McCartney’s brand business) and media conglomerate Condé Nast, its aptitude to deal with media big wigs is self-evident. Leading trademark attorney and trained barrister Ian Bartlett exudes quality and control. “Firm but fair, he is great at formulating strategy and very smart.” Overseas associates also attest to his quality, with one claiming that he and Beck Greener are “crushing” bigger names in the UK scene. Duncan Morgan is a qualified IP litigator with the skill for crafting and prosecuting outstanding trademark applications and negotiating commercial licences. “His due diligence and attention to detail is second to none. Extremely helpful, knowledgeable and clear, he always keeps clients updated at every stage.” Alicante-based Rowland Buehrlen “grasps the nettle, sees the big picture and is inventive in his arguments”. Fluent in French and German, he has been tasked with heading up the firm’s EUIPO capabilities on the spot in Spain – a vital task, given the ongoing uncertainty that surrounds Brexit.”

We are grateful to our clients for their contribution to the World Trademark Review 1000 research and for their positive feedback as quoted by the WTR 1000.
