UK: Gold for prosecution and strategy and silver for enforcement and litigation

WTR 1000 writes: D Young & Co is a top-tier, well-established IP boutique that delivers nothing but the highest level of service. Its team of professionals are pragmatic and efficient, and truly work together to provide consistency and continuity on matters. They each offer excellent advice and support in a friendly and engaging way.

At the forefront, and leading the litigation practice, is the highly experienced Tamsin Holman who earns praise for her “responsiveness, tremendous depth of knowledge of trade mark law and impressive analyses”. She deftly handles large litigations for household-name brands and is currently representing Marriott Worldwide in a series of ongoing disputes against Delta Air Lines.

Anna Reid is another key name to note for contentious instructions, thanks to her “prompt expert advice, thorough analyses and ability to quickly address problems. She is smart, responsive, and vehemently defends the rights of her clients.” “Every bit as good at contentious advice as at non-contentious advice,

Matthew Dick is the number one go-to for trade mark work in the UK. He is a smart, knowledgeable and friendly practitioner who has a fantastic sense of humour, which is a wonderful addition to his consummate professionalism. Matthew builds longstanding relationships with his clientele, which is highly valued alongside his diligence in providing a personalised service.”

Delivering an exceptional prosecution offering to the likes of Willy Bogner and Lush, Richard Burton, Gemma Kirkland and Jackie Johnson earn rave reviews from the market. “Richard provides consistent top-quality, practical advice, and is especially appreciated for his responsiveness and flexibility when adjusting to new standards and when work needs to be completed on an expedited basis.” “Gemma is a very experienced trade mark practitioner who demonstrates clear and pragmatic thinking, a high degree of organisation, and excellent communication skills. She provides high-quality, commercially minded advice in a clear and unambiguous manner. Gemma is particularly helpful when moving matters forward and provides quick feedback on strategy.” “An excellent and savvy trade mark attorney, Jackie can be relied on when difficult trade mark issues arise. She is a very friendly, determined and knowledgeable practitioner, who provides prompt and helpful answers to queries and keeps trade mark portfolios in great shape.”

Germany: Bronze

Impressive UK-based patent and trade mark attorney shop D Young [& Co] extends its coverage into Germany, thanks to the hardworking and smart Jana Bogatz. Already enjoying a sterling reputation in the market, Bogatz is held in high esteem by her clients, who praise her service and skill: “Jana is an excellent outside counsellor, always looking for the resolution which benefits the business. She is prompt in her responses and reasonable in her rates. While settlement is often the goal, Jana (and others at D Young [& Co]) can be a tough litigator when required.” Active in the community, and at INTA, Bogatz is regarded by peers in the market as a “good IP lawyer who is very fair in litigation with the skill required to develop the practice”.
