WTR 1000 UK 2023 – gold firms: prosecution & strategy, silver firms: enforcement & litigation
“D Young [& Co] is an exceptional one-stop shop for all trademark prosecution matters in both the UK and EU.”
The group has continued to flourish since Brexit and now manages over 25,000 UK registrations and cloned rights. The close collaboration with its German office has been essential in its recent successes, with plenty of clients benefiting from the team’s pan-European offering, including Skechers, which has placed its faith in Tamsin Holman to oversee the enforcement of its trademark rights in Spain and Denmark in the past year. Holman has also been representing Sega and Procter & Gamble in contentious proceedings. “Tamsin is an IP lawyer of the highest calibre. She consistently delivers high-quality legal work and advice at a very reasonable price. Tamsin is very practical, extremely responsive and simply a cut above the rest.”
Taking care of Hard Rock International and LG Chem on the prosecution side is Matthew Dick. “Matthew’s knowledge and professionalism know no bounds. His advice is clear, detailed and transparent. His insight is unparalleled.” His colleague Richard Burton has recently been advising Lumenisity and Americold. “Richard’s expertise, responsiveness and overall communication skills make him wonderful to work with. He is practical, efficient, organized and his attention to detail and the quality of his legal writing are exceptional. Richard goes above and beyond to provide top-quality work product.”
Providing further expertise are Jackie Johnson, Anna Reid, Gemma Kirkland, Jeremy Pennant and Helen Cawley. “Jackie is very responsive and provides high-quality advice. She is proactive, efficient and is excellent at guiding clients through IP issues.” “Anna provides excellent advice, focusing on reaching business-friendly solutions. She is prompt, responsive and, in the litigation context, is a formidable adversary. Anna is a pleasure to work with.” “Gemma is responsive, a great communicator and an expert in trademark law. She is an excellent team player and provides quick and insightful strategic advice.” “Jeremy’s knowledge of UK and EU trademark law is unrivalled. He provides excellent, business-focused advice, always seeking a prompt and cost-efficient resolution to various matters. He is extremely responsive, as well as reasonably priced.” Commercial operator Cawley is at her best when handling oppositions and cancellation actions before the UKIPO and EUIPO.
