D Young & Co Achieves 'Gold' Review for its "Top Quality Legal Advice": World Trademark Review 1000

The 2013 World Trademark Review (WTR 1000) ranks D Young & Co Trade Mark Services as 'gold', and refers to the firm as "forward-thinking" with a "persuasive one-stop service".

As a 'gold' level firm, D Young & Co has been highlighted as 1 of only 4 UK Trade Mark practices that have attracted "the most positive comments from sources. We [WTR 1000] have identified them as the crème de la crème; their success hinges on reputations established over lengthy periods of time, something which enables them to secure the most high-profile, big-ticket work from the most demanding of clients."

The review writes: "Commentators continue to watch "forward-thinking" D Young with interest, following the recruitment in January 2011 of "top-calibre litigator" Ian Starr and his squad to complement its roster of trademark attorneys.  The trailblazing move has equipped the firm to provide persuasive one-stop service to a cadre of prestigious household names, including PepsiCo, Rolex, Renault and Duracell.  Work ranges from fixed-price searches to tailored solutions to the most complex disputes.  "The results are excellent:  D Young & Co delivers top-quality legal advice at a reasonable cost, and is very responsive to rights holders' needs."  Respected figure Jeremy Pennant "runs the department extremely well".  Like Starr, he is "a seasoned practitioner who understands every aspect of his clients' business".

The D Young & Co Group are delighted with this review and would like to thank our clients and colleagues for their positive contribution to the World TradeMark Review's research.
