Last Updated: 31 January 2017

Sparke Helmore Lawyers would like to congratulate Partner Shannon Platt and our Intellectual Property Technology (IPT) team on their fourth consecutive ranking in the 2017 World Trademark Review's WTR 1000.

The Review listed Sparke Helmore in the bronze category for "Enforcement and Litigation" and recommended the firm in the "Prosecution and Strategy" category, going on to say: "Sparke Helmore's IP services are exhaustive; the firm has some 5,000 marks under its stewardship and extensive experience litigating in all the major venues in Australia. A string of satisfied patrons keep coming back for more, enticed by its keen commercial insight."

National Head of the IPT team, Shannon Platt, was also individually ranked in the silver category for enforcement and litigation. The Review shared a glowing client commendation stating, "She is a superior lawyer and a leader in her field. Efficient, responsive and thorough in her approach, she provides excellent service all around."

Now in its seventh year, WTR 1000 is the only standalone publication to recommend individual practitioners and their firms exclusively in the trademark field, and identifies the leading players in over 60 key jurisdictions globally. Individual practitioners, law firms and trademark attorney practices qualify for inclusion in the WTR 1000 on receiving sufficient positive feedback from market sources.
