UK: Clyde & Co IP Stars
Last Updated: 6 July 2016

Four Clyde & Co partners have been awarded Managing Intellectual Property's 'IP Star' award, which recognises the world's leading IP lawyers based on nominations by clients and peers.

In the UK, David Wilkinson received the award for his work with trade marks and Ralph Cox for patents, while in the UAE, Rob Deans and Joycia Young both received the award for trade marks.

Clyde & Co as a firm received four tier 1 rankings from Managing Intellectual Property in the UAE categories of patent contentious, patent prosecution, trade mark prosecution and trade mark contentious/copyright. Clyde & Co was also ranked for the first time in the UK category of contentious trade mark work, following the establishment of its London IP practice in 2015.

The firm's IP capabilities have also recently been recognised by World Trademark Review. David Wilkinson has been ranked in the silver category for his work in trade mark enforcement and litigation and is described as "a great litigator who does a lot of his own advocacy." The UAE IP team has been ranked in the Gold category and described as "a proficient and well-experienced outfit." Rob Deans is ranked in the Gold category and is noted to be a "veteran of the trademark game" and a "fearsome and worthy competitor", while Joycia Young receives a Silver ranking and is described as a "commercialisation maven" with "an intuitive understanding of companies' long-term objectives."

Finally, Ralph Cox in London has received two further plaudits, having been ranked by both Chambers Global 2016 and IAM Patent 1000 as one of the world's leading patent litigation experts.
