D Young & Co LLP Welcomes New Trade Mark Partner Jackie Johnson
We are pleased to announce that trade mark attorney Jackie Johnson joins the D Young & Co LLP partnership with effect from 1 March 2011. The firm continues to grow, with the number of partners now at 32.
Jackie has extensive experience across a range of trade mark activities including searching, filing, oppositions, appeals and invalidations both before the UK IPO and OHIM, as well as handling worldwide trade mark portfolios for clients. She has advised a number of clients from individuals to multi-national organisations across a broad range of sectors, in particular the automobile, airline, fashion, music and entertainment, cosmetics and toiletries, industrial tools and food and drink industries.
Jackie's appointment further strengthens D Young & Co's highly successful Trade Mark Group, which now comprises 5 partners, 2 associates and 1 senior assistant. The group has an impeccable track record in trade mark protection and the expansion of the group demonstrates our commitment to the continued provision of top tier trade mark services. We are proud to have been recommended as a top tier trade mark practice for 9 consecutive years and to have been ranked by Managing Intellectual Property (MIP) as one of only two top tier firms for trade mark prosecution work in the UK.
Jackie will accompany Trade Mark Group members Jeremy Penannt, Angela Thornton-Jackson, Helen Cawley and Gemma Williams to the INTA Annual Meeting in San Francisco, May 2011. The team will also be joined by the firm's new Dispute Resolution and Litigation Group partners Ian Starr and Tamsin Holman.
