WTR 2018 Rankings Distinguishes Foley Hoag Among World's Leading Trademark Law Firms

Attorneys Julia Huston, Joshua Jarvis and Natasha Reed Recognized for Proficiency in Specialized Areas

February 6, 2018

The international publication World Trademark Review (WTR) has included Foley Hoag among the top trademark law firms, and commended three of the firm’s attorneys for their expertise in trademark matters.

WTR 1000 – The World's Leading Trademark Professionals 2018 recommends individual practitioners and their firms exclusively in the trademark field, and identifies the leading players in 70 key jurisdictions globally. This year’s rankings placed Foley Hoag in the silver category within the United States-Massachusetts jurisdiction.

The WTR’s annual assessment identifies Foley Hoag as "one of the best in Massachusetts for trademark work," and as "a top-tier firm with high-quality people."

Partner Julia Huston, Co-Chair of the firm’s Intellectual Property Department, was ranked in the gold category for enforcement and litigation and for prosecution and strategy. Partner Joshua Jarvis was ranked in the bronze category in prosecution and strategy, and counsel Natasha Reed was ranked in the bronze category in enforcement and litigation.

The review recognized Huston as "remarkable" and a go-to for prestigious trademark owners. The review also noted that Huston's "judicious insight serves clients equally well in both sophisticated prosecution and enforcement," earning her praise from clients who added: "Her leadership and litigation skills are superb" and "It’s easy to resolve a dispute with her because she takes a firm but practical stance. Unlike lawyers who refuse to give a straight answer, she covers all the bases and is direct with her responses."

Jarvis was cited as "a prosecution dynamo who acquits himself brilliantly in the domain name space," prompting one client to comment: "One of the Foley Hoag stars, Jarvis is extremely knowledgeable and bright. He’s an excellent lawyer."

The review noted that "anti-counterfeiting maven" Reed is a "real shot in the arm for Foley Hoag." It also mentioned that "her robust prosecution, litigation and transactions practice has greatly augmented the firm’s trademark presence in New York."

Methodology for the WTR 1000 – The World's Leading Trademark Professionals comprises extensive phone interviews with hundreds of lawyers and clients, and a written submission from each firm. The 2018 rankings can be found here.
