Winkler Partners has been recognized as an “eminent” trademark practice by the World Trademark Review. The WTR ranks firms and individuals in seventy major markets worldwide, and publishes their findings annually, in a report known as the WTR 1000.
In their 2015 publication, the WTR says that “the IP function at Winkler Partners is one of Taiwan’s most laudable” and that our “combination of domestic and international expertise appeals to many major companies – it represents nearly one-quarter of Interbrand’s 100 most valuable brands”. The WTR goes on to state that WP is known for our “star-studded client base” that includes major domestic tech properties as well as global eCommerce and Internet giants.
Quoting our clients, WTR notes that we provide “a high level of competence, good understanding of local laws, consistent results and prompt, attentive service”. In previous years, we have been recognized as “a favorite of companies with a transnational interest” as well as for our “highly knowledgeable and client-focused counsel”.
Head of our IP practice, Peter Dernbach, has also been named as a top trademark professional in the report. Described as “standout”, Peter is “a trusted advocate who speaks excellent Chinese and understands the system very well… he and his entire team are a real pleasure to work with”. Peter is ranked highly for enforcement and litigation, and listed as one of only five individuals in Taiwan for his prosecution and strategy work.
The WTR 1000 is the first definitive guide exclusively dedicated to identifying the world’s leading trademark legal services providers. Winkler Partners has been honored to be included since the publication launched in 2011. You can find the entire guide for 2015 here.
