The World's Leading Trademark Professionals recognizes 49 DLA Piper lawyers

DLA Piper continues to be widely recognized by World Trademark Review 1000: The World's Leading Trademark Professionals, which has named 49 DLA Piper lawyers globally to its 2023 list of top trademark professionals. The list includes nine lawyers in multiple key United States jurisdictions, reflecting the practice’s deep bench and expansive reach.

The US-based individuals are Heather Dunn, Gina Durham, Tamar Duvdevani, Kevin Fee, Ann Ford, Michael Geller, Keith Medanksy, Melissa Reinckens, and Tom Zutic. In addition to individual accolades, DLA Piper is ranked as a top national trademark firm with additional nods for the firm’s Illinois, California, and Washington, DC teams.

WTR recommends these leading professionals and departments based on an extensive four-month research process in which the publication interviews hundreds of lawyers and clients around the world to identify firms and individuals “that are deemed outstanding in this critical area of practice.” The guide notes that DLA Piper practitioners take a “dedicated and tenacious approach,” and are “thoughtful and responsive, possessing an intimate understanding of [their clients’] business.” 

“We are thrilled to have so many members of our trademark team recognized by WTR again this year,” said Tamar Duvdevani, US Chair, Trademark, Copyright & Media and US Co-Chair, Consumer Products & Retail Sector. “We have a top-notch bench of practitioners that enforce and provide strategic counseling to some of the world’s most innovative brands, and we’re proud to be recognized for our work helping our clients build, maintain, and protect their most valuable assets.” 

With leading trademark lawyers in major markets around the world, DLA Piper’s widely respected team is well positioned to help clients solve their trademark issues across all borders. The firm’s global reach and local knowledge enables its lawyers to work collaboratively and provide seamless, high-quality global service.
