MLT Aikins has been recognized in the tenth edition of the renowned international legal directory World Trademark Review 1000 (WTR).
The WTR 1000 highlights what it considers to be the top law firms, attorneys and agents in the trademark field. MLT Aikins makes its debut in the guide this year, ranking bronze nationally in Canada. The ranking reflects the firm’s consideration as one of the most competitive in the Canadian trademark space.
WTR 1000 presents its ranking in bands – gold, silver and bronze – to reflect featured firms’ and individuals’ depth of expertise, market presence and level of work. The publication therefore serves as a one-stop resource for anyone seeking trademark legal services.
Trademark agent Lorraine Pinsent has also been named a “Recommended Individual” by WTR. This is the eighth consecutive year that Lorraine has been so named, since 2012. Lorraine’s practice primarily deals with trademark searching, prosecution, oppositions, licensing, portfolio management and international trademark protection. She is “a recognised leader in Canadian trademark prosecution who builds excellent relationships with her clients”. “We view her as a very valuable service provider and a member of our team. A personable, knowledgeable, experienced and business-savvy practitioner,” chimes one satisfied patron.
The WTR 1000 directory focuses exclusively on trademark practices and practitioners, and has established itself as the “go-to” resource for those seeking legal trademark expertise. The publication recommends who it considers to be the top 1000 of the trademark scene. It says, “only those delivering top-quality services make the cut.”
The WTR 1000 is the only publication that recommends practitioners exclusively in the trademark field. Since 2010, WTR 1000 has been identifying outstanding firms and leading individuals in this area of practice in 80 jurisdictions around the world. Its research and selection process involves interviews and correspondence with lawyers and clients. The publication notes, “Individuals qualify for inclusion in the WTR 1000 upon receiving sufficient positive feedback from market sources with knowledge of their practice and the market in which they operate.”
