Arent Fox Trademark Team Once Again Named Among Nation’s Best by World Trademark Review
Arent Fox LLP’s Trademark practice has been recognized as one of the best in the country by World Trademark Review after the industry-leading publication reported the firm’s “deep bench” of “excellent” lawyers “know exactly what they are doing” for a global roster of clients.
As part of its annual rankings, WTR noted that Arent Fox “has a premier reputation on the market” and named Managing Partner Cristina A. Carvalho and Partners James R. Davis, Ricardo Fischer, Michael A. Grow, Anthony V. Lupo, Michelle Mancino Marsh, and N. Christopher Norton among the top trademark attorneys in the country.
In singling out the Arent Fox partners, WTR lauded Ms. Carvalho’s “nuanced international expertise” as a “primary weapon in her diverse arsenal” and noted she is “especially talented when it comes to prosecution and transactional mandates that cross over into Latin America.”
The publication dubbed Mr. Davis “the firm’s resident internet and domain name specialist”; tabbed Mr. Fischer for his “business-minded approach,” which is “best exploited in multi-jurisdictional matters”; endorsed the “creative, thoughtful and excellent ” Mr. Grow, who “radiates brightest when it comes to full-blooded litigation”; wrote that “conundrums in the apparel industry are meat and drink” for Mr. Lupo and that he “successfully handles a broad range of clearance, prosecution and enforcement work” and is “firm but practical, making him easy to work with”; applauded Ms. Marsh as a "shrewd litigator and counsellor" that "operates at the bleeding edges of internet law and the fashion field"; and highlighted Mr. Norton as a “superstar attorney” who is “an assured guardian of domestic and foreign rights to a slew of global brands.”
