Sparke Helmore Lawyers would like to congratulate Shannon Platt and our Intellectual Property team on their ranking in the 2016 World Trademark Review's WTR 1000.

The firm was recognised in both the "Enforcement and Litigation" and "Prosecution and Strategy" categories and Shannon Platt was recommended for her IP work, with the Review noting that the "firm's profile has soared under the watch of master of all trades and division leader Shannon Platt".

The Review also said that "With over 4,000 marks and counting under its management, it is proving a prime pick for clients of all stripes. It also has a knack for securing favourable outcomes in IP disputes, with copyright, design, patent, passing-off and trade secret cases, and more, all put successfully to bed."

The IP team has been included in WTR 1000 for three years running, which is a recognition by clients and peers of the team's skills and expertise.

Coming into its sixth year, the WTR 1000 is the only standalone publication to recommend individual practitioners and their firms exclusively in the trademark field, and identifies the leading players in over 60 key jurisdictions globally. Individual practitioners, law firms and trademark attorney practices qualify for inclusion in the WTR 1000 on receiving sufficient positive feedback from market sources.
