The World Trademark Review, a premier publication covering the global trademark industry, recently published its annual WTR 1000 list for 2021. We are honored to report that Winterfeldt IP Group has been named to this prestigious list, along with our attorneys Brian Winterfeldt and Griffin Barnett.
The WTR 1000, published each year, is the culmination of an extensive process of research and review from peers and clients, spanning many months. The list contains a ranking of top law firms providing trademark services, as well as top individual attorneys, as organized by country and jurisdiction.
For 2021, Winterfeldt IP Group was again listed as a top firm in the Washington, DC metro area for trademark prosecution and strategy. In addition, for the first time, Winterfeldt IP Group has been listed as a top firm for trademark enforcement and litigation in the Washington, DC metro area. In both categories, most honorees are large national or global law firms, and Winterfeldt IP Group is one of only a few smaller specialty firms to be listed.
In addition, our Founder and Principal, Brian Winterfeldt, has been listed as a top attorney in the Washington, DC metro area for trademark prosecution and strategy, where clients cited his "foresight" and responsiveness. For the first time, our Associate, Griffin Barnett, has also been listed as a leading practitioner in this category, where he is cited as an expert on digital brand protection matters and is noted as a "rising star."
Please visit the WTR 1000 site for a full listing of the firms and individual practitioners who have been honored in 2021. Congratulations to all who have been named to this prestigious list!
