WASHINGTON DC, March 4, 2013 – Patton Boggs is pleased to announce that the firm’s Intellectual Property (IP) practice group has been recognized for excellence through placement on World Trademark Review’s “WTR 1000 2013: The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals,” in the Bronze category.
According the WTR 1000, firms earning recognition in the Bronze category are highly praised by sources interviewed and have reputations as among the most competitive firms in the field. In recognizing Patton Boggs, the WTR 1000 noted that the “firm has a flair for identifying the nuanced aspects and unique features of a trademark portfolio – particularly in specialized and complex sectors – to achieve highly successful prosecution and litigation results.”
Patton Boggs also congratulates George Borababy, a partner in the IP practice, for garnering special praise in the WTR 1000 review. Mr. Borababy is described as a “professional, knowledgeable, thorough and cost-conscious” lawyer who “provides practical advice and, when necessary, offers alternative approaches and options.”
This honor is particularly noteworthy because the WTR 1000 only recognizes individual practitioners when they receive sufficient positive feedback from market sources with knowledge of their practice and the market within which they operate.
Since 2011, World Trademark Review (WTR) magazine has compiled and published a list of the world’s leading trademark lawyers. The list is the result of telephone interviews, correspondence and written submissions from hundreds of trademark lawyers and their clients. Firms qualify for a listing on the basis of their depth of expertise, market presence and the level of work on which they are typically instructed.
