(BOSTON, February 6, 2014) - Day Pitney's Trademark group made its inaugural appearance in the World Trademark Review (WTR) 1000, a guide to "the world's leading trademark legal services providers." WTR cited Day Pitney's "notable growth of its trademark division" as one of several reasons the firm was included in the 2014 list. According to the publication, Day Pitney's "nimble cadre of committed attorneys cover the gamut of functions, from portfolio management to enforcement." WTR also recognized the firm for its licensing work and its ability to capitalize on the strength of its corporate department.
Partner Carrie Webb Olson, head of Day Pitney's Trademark, Copyright and Advertising group, was credited by the publication for doing "a remarkable job of assembling an ambitious line-up and forging wonderful client relationships." WTR also noted that Ms. Olson is recognized by clients for "her strategic guidance on international brand selection, prioritisation and protection."
"This is an incredible honor for our hardworking and ace trademark group," said partner Elizabeth Alquist, chair of Day Pitney's Intellectual Property department. "We are honored to be included in the list and be recognized for the work we do for our clients."
