World Trademark Review's 2017 Rankings Distinguishes Foley Hoag Among World's Leading Trademark Law Firms

January 27, 2017

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 2017 recommends individual practitioners and their firms exclusively in the trademark field, and identifies the leading players in 72 key jurisdictions globally. This year’s rankings placed Foley Hoag in the silver category within the United States-Massachusetts jurisdiction.

Partner Julia Huston, Chair of the firm’s Trademark, Copyright and Unfair Competition Practice, 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 WTR’s annual assessment identifies Foley Hoag as having "a strong national IP practice." A client was also quoted as saying "I have seen [Foley Hoag] take over matters and drive them to their conclusion when these same matters were languishing with other firms..."

The review recognized Huston as an "outstanding talent" who proves her worth as "one of the top branding attorneys in the United States." Jarvis, hailed as another star of Foley Hoag's IP practice, was cited as "very creative and a great attorney with the personality to match," as well as "an expert in the new media space."

Reed, who joined Foley Hoag in 2016 to enhance trademark and branding capabilities in its New York office, "significantly bolstered the firm’s expertise in false advertising and anti-counterfeiting," and was identified as "a go-to for any issue involving luxury goods."

Foley Hoag represents both domestic and international clients in trademark matters. The firm’s trademark clients are leaders in a wide range of industries, including life sciences, consumer products, technology, insurance and financial services, professional services, entertainment and education.

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 2017 rankings can be found here.
