March 03, 2022

Attorneys Joshua Jarvis, Jenevieve Maerker and Natasha Reed Recognized for Proficiency in Specialized Areas

The international publication World Trademark Review (WTR) has included Foley Hoag LLP among the top trademark law firms, and commended three 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 2022 edition of WTR’s annual assessment calls attention to Foley Hoag’s trademark team that “shines particularly brightly on contentious matters and litigates court cases and TTAB proceedings, investigates and stops counterfeiting activities and resolves domain name disputes with equal finesse.” It also notes that “the lawyers at Foley Hoag give advice laced with valuable industry insight to dynamic players in the fashion and luxury, life sciences, food and beverage, consumer products, retail and cannabis spaces.”

Partner Joshua Jarvis, co-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. Partner Natasha Reed, co-chair of the Trademark, Copyright, and Unfair Competition practice group, ranked in the bronze category in enforcement and litigation in New York.

According to the review, Jarvis "is a Swiss army knife of a lawyer who takes care of his clients’ every brand need.” Maerker was noted as "another valuable contact – particularly for pharmaceutical companies, thanks to her sophisticated understanding of the branding issues they face.” Reed was highlighted as "excellent to consult with on online enforcement, which has become a specialised area of her practice."

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.
