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 Washington, D.C., office was rated Bronze for “Prosecution and Strategy;” and specifically highlights Jennifer Dean:

“Tailored advice is its overarching goal: it shuns the one-size-fits-all approach in favour of client and industry-specific counsel. Its practitioners are attuned to the diverse needs of different companies, such as internal pressures, cost sensitivities and appetite for risk. Expertise from the firm’s potent advertising and promotions practice makes retail and consumer goods strongholds for the trademark team.” “Jennifer Dean’s specialized understanding of the issues facing the industry results in efficient, business-savvy solutions. ‘She is very highly thought of, especially in prosecution – she is keenly focused on that area and has deep insight into what the USPTO is currently doing and what the trends and evolving issues are.”

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.
