February 17, 2021

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

WTR 1000 – The World's Leading Trademark Professionals recommends law firms and individual practitioners in the trademark field, and identifies the leading players in 80 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’s trademark team as having lawyers who “don’t just robotically carry out instructions, but sit down with brand owners to understand their goals and then collaboratively design and implement the best strategies to make them a reality.”  It also notes that the firm fulfills “this partner role very effectively, leveraging deep trademark expertise, a well-rounded contentious and non-contentious skillset and fine-grained industry knowledge.”

Partner Joshua Jarvis, Deputy Chair of the firm’s Intellectual Property Department, ranked in the silver category in Massachusetts for prosecution and strategy. Counsel and Trademark, Copyright & Unfair Competition practice co-chair Jenevieve Maerker ranked in the bronze category in prosecution and strategy in Massachusetts.

According to the review Jarvis "can take any large international portfolio and chisel it into optimal shape, working synergistically with foreign associates.” Maerker was cited as having "a real affinity for pharmaceutical trademarks.”

WTR 1000 – The World's Leading Trademark Professionals bases its assessments on extensive phone interviews with hundreds of lawyers and clients, and a written submission from each firm. The 2021 rankings can be found here
