World Trademark Review (WTR) has recognized Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati’s trademark and advertising practice in its newly published 2022 edition of World Trademark Review 1000 – The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals. The WTR 1000 is an annual guide that solicits industry feedback and identifies the top trademark professionals in key jurisdictions around the globe. Once again, Wilson Sonsini is recognized as a leading firm in both California and Washington.
According to the 2022 publication, “for many top internet and software players, as well as venture-backed emerging technology companies, Wilson Sonsini is the number one choice of representative for all things trademark-related. The team lives and breathes technology and brands and is prized for its commitment, strategic expertise, and broad and sophisticated counseling, licensing, and litigation skillset ….. The members of its trademark and advertising team play the role of trusted adviser to perfection, but can also bring the heat in high-stakes litigation, showcasing … outstanding tactical acumen.”
John Slafsky is noted as a gold-ranked attorney in California in both the enforcement and litigation and prosecution and strategy categories. Specifically, the report notes that John “demonstrates mastery in all aspects of trademark practice and is commended by his peers as a ‘level-headed, highly intelligent, and extremely engaging and communicative lawyer.’” Aaron Hendelman is recognized as a leading trademark practitioner in Washington, and is described as “always up to speed on the latest developments in the technology and business worlds, [and] has valuable insight on the IP issues associated with non-fungible tokens and many other bleeding-edge topics that are not yet on the radar of his peers.”
To arrive at the 2022 rankings, the WTR 1000 research team conducted face-to-face and telephone interviews and exchanged correspondence over a four-month period with hundreds of lawyers, attorneys, and their clients involved with trademarks. The team also gathered a record number of written submissions from firms detailing their recent activity in the field. 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. Firms qualify for a listing on the basis of their depth of expertise, market presence, and the level of work on which they are typically instructed.
