Last Updated: 1 April 2008

Melbourne, Australia, 31st March, 2008 -- The Managing IP World Intellectual Property Survey 2008, which publishes detailed rankings of the leading firms practising intellectual property in each country, has listed Nicholas Weston for the first time since the firm was founded in 2005.

The firm is listed enters the list at Tier 5 for trade marks prosecution in Australia. Rankings are based on surveys of clients and recommendations from clients and other practitioners.

According to Managing IP magazine:

"The World IP Survey is not simply a list of the biggest firms, or a list of those that have the biggest case load or are the oldest. Instead it is a qualitative ranking of the leading firms in each category and reveals which firms are rated by their peers for the strength of their expertise and the depth of their ability to service clients."

"Even firms listed in the lower tiers have been recommended by a number of practitioners and deserve congratulation on their inclusion."

The firm’s Principal Lawyer, Nick Weston said:

"It confirms that we are on the right track. We will just stick to our knitting."

No firm can vote for its own inclusion or purchase a listing in the MIP World Intellectual Property Survey 2008, which lists the leading firms in trade marks prosecution and contentious work in 65 jurisdictions. It is described by its publisher as "the world’s most detailed and authoritative survey of the IP market."
