Beck Greener News

We are delighted to announce that Beck Greener has been recognised as a Silver Tier firm in the 2022 edition of the World Trademark Review (WTR) 1000: The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals for the 4th consecutive year running. The WTR 1000 reveals the leading national and international trademark practitioners from around the world. Four Beck Greener trade mark attorneys (Ian BartlettDuncan MorganRowland Buehrlen and Catherine Jewell) have once again been highlighted as trade mark experts within the guide.

The WTR 1000 writes:
“Beck Greener is known not only for its longstanding client relationships – many of which have endured for several decades – but also for the prestige of the names on its books. While it moves in fields from high technology to pharmaceuticals, the media and entertainment sector is a particular stronghold. In the last year alone, the firm has filed and prosecuted trademarks for Paul McCartney’s company MPL Communications; coordinated international filing strategies for Ed Sheeran and his company Sidewind; acted for data centre service provider Telehouse in a major invalidity claim; and provided comprehensive brands advice to Big Four accounting firm PwC. Acting on the former three pieces is Duncan Morgan; while the latter is being handled by Ian Bartlett. In addition to being a qualified trademark attorney, Morgan benefits from qualification as an IP litigator and enhanced rights of audience before the High Court. His clients include not only some of the biggest stars in music, but also everyone from software developers to publishers and fashion houses; and he also has a growing copyright practice. Practice head Bartlett is three decades seasoned and shows no sign of slowing down, as reflected by his status as the second-most regular advocate appearing before the UKIPO over the past five years. “Ian is extremely good to work with – he gets on very well with clients and has a deep understanding of trademark and related law and process.” Catherine Jewell boasts qualification as a UK trademark attorney as well as an Irish trademark agent, and juggles her soft IP work with a thriving patent practice. “Catherine is a knowledgeable and talented attorney who takes the time to understand the nature of the client’s business and its objectives from an IP point of view, and then works to develop a realistic strategy to achieve those objectives. Her knowledge of the relevant case law, ability to analyse a situation, writing ability, organisational skills and attention to detail cannot be overstated.” Connecting the firm to Europe is Rowland Buehrlen, who manages the Alicante office and is fluent in French and German. A qualified Irish trademark agent, he has developed thorough knowledge of both UK and European trademark law over the last two decades”.”

We are very 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.
