ATLANTA (February 1)Managing Intellectual Property (Managing IP) released its 2017 IP Stars Trademark Rankings and once again, Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton received the highest possible rating in Trademark Prosecution and Trademark Contentious practice. For the fourth consecutive year, Kilpatrick Townsend’s Trademark team received Tier One distinction in both Trademark Prosecution and Trademark Contentious in the U.S. National category. Kilpatrick Townsend is one of only two firms in the U.S. to achieve the top accolade in both trademark categories.

IP Stars is Managing IP's specialist guide to the leading IP firms and practitioners worldwide. The guide reviews the world's leading trademark firms for prosecution and contentious work and is the longest running analysis in the market. A worldwide team of researchers contacted firms in more than 70 jurisdictions to rank firms in tiers.  The total number of firms listed, as well as the number of tiers, varies from each market. The research is conducted rigorously and impartially. Firms cannot vote for their own inclusion or solicit votes from associates.

Moreover, the tables are not an exhaustive list of every firm in each jurisdiction; inclusion is based on merit and recommendation by peers and clients. Managing IP does not endorse or recommend any particular firm, and no firm has paid to be included in the rankings.

Managing IP's recognition follows recent national distinction for Kilpatrick Townsend's Trademark and Copyright team, including:

  • 2017 World Trademark Review United States, National Gold Level ranking;
  • US News - Best Lawyers® 2017 “Best Law Firms”: National Tier 1 ranking;
  • 2017 Best Lawyers in America®: top listed firm in the nation for the number of Trademark attorneys listed; and
  • Leading firm for Intellectual Property: Trademark, Copyright & Trade Secrets nationwide by the 2016 edition of Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business.
