Ampersand Advocates welcomes World Trademark Review 2018 rankings

Ampersand Advocates Craig Sandison QC and Usman Tariq feature in the 2018 rankings of the World Trademark Review 1000.

The WTR 1000 research directory, which focuses exclusively on trademark practices and practitioners, has established itself as the definitive ‘go-to’ resource for those seeking world-class legal trademark expertise. The World Trademark Review undertook a qualitative research project to identify the firms and individuals that are deemed outstanding in this critical area of practice. When identifying the leading firms, factors such as depth of expertise, market presence and the level of work on which they are typically instructed were all taken into account, alongside positive peer and client feedback.

Craig Sandison QC is described as “a brilliant legal thinker across many fields of law, not least intellectual property. When it comes to trademark infringement disputes, he gets right to the nub of the issue quickly and efficiently and advocates in pragmatic fashion.” Usman Tariq is new to the WTR1000 who say “Tariq undertakes more IP activities than any other junior; solicitors profess themselves to be dazzled by his opinion work”.
