Drinker Biddle's Intellectual Property Practice Group has once again been ranked in the World Trademark Review 1000 (WTR 1000) for 2016. The Washington, D.C. and Chicago practices were rated, as well as individual lawyers.

The Chicago office was rated Bronze, with a special mention for partner Darren Cahr:

Drinker boasts “a robust, sophisticated trademark team. Catering to a slew of top-dollar clients, it offers the full range of branding services. Dedication to providing comprehensive solutions for everything that a brand owner might need has resulted in strong trade dress, advertising and non-traditional marks know-how that complements the usual prosecution, litigation and licensing capabilities. This versatility is exemplified by chair of advertising and promotions Darren Cahr, a marque and product design maestro who attracts special notice in the contentious arena.”

The WTR 1000, a British publication, is comprised of in-depth jurisdiction-specific chapters that analyze the local market and identify leading practitioners and firms. Over a four-month period, analysts conducted more than 1,300 interviews with trademark specialists in more than 60 key jurisdictions. Interviewees’ opinions were specifically sought on the firms and practitioners that are leading the field in terms of their work, their skills and their levels of client service.

All individuals named on the list were included because the World Trademark Review received substantial positive feedback about them.
