The Dennemeyer Group has been selected as the “Recommended Trademark Service Provider” by World Trademark Review 1000. In addition to the overall ranking in the ninth edition of the international guide, Dennemeyer & Associates scored high among the leading IP law firms in Benelux and Croatia. The research was conducted over a four-month period by a team of full-time analysts who undertook more than 1,500 interviews with trademark specialists across the globe. As with the previous editions, factors such as depth of expertise, market presence and level of knowledge were taken into account when compiling the rankings.

With more than 55 years of experience in delivering quality IP services and more than 20 outposts on all continents, Dennemeyer has a unique position among WTR 1000-recommended trademark service providers being described as “completely professional, reliable and well organized.” Dennemeyer & Associates, working in unison with the global Dennemeyer Group, specializes in the preparation and worldwide registration of patents , trademarks and designs.

Leveraging its international presence, the IP law firm can assist clients in every step of the prosecution phase of IP management. In Benelux, many significant changes were implemented after June 2018 when the reformed Benelux Convention on Intellectual Property entered into force. Leading the trademark team in Luxembourg through this changing times, Olivier Lombardo is an “a commercial and international thinker who practices dexterously across the contentious/non-contentious divide.” Croatia, on the other hand, continues its fight against counterfeits that flow into Rijeka, the entry port for many parallel imports. Heading the Zagreb office, Tomislav Hadzija “is a fantastic lawyer whose top reputation is well deserved. He is approachable and always does everything he can to meet his clients’ needs.”

The WTR 1000 was published in January 2019 with the research for the next edition starting in March 2019.

Last year, Dennemeyer Group and CTC Legal Media set up IP Trend Monitor, an online expert panel that includes professionals from all areas of Intellectual Property management and conducted a wide-ranging survey focusing on the impact of digitalization on the management of IP. The results show few frictions among respondents and an overall positive attitude toward digitalization. But, how exactly do the most important players expect the IP industry to change and how do they feel about it?

Some of the answers and a preliminary analysis can be found in the recently published IP Expert Guide 2019. The core results of the study show that the IP industry is on an ascending trajectory, growing fast in all segments, and has China leading the way, closely followed by Europe (including Scandinavia) and USA/Canada, which rank on the second and third place.

IP Trend Monitor’s first study demonstrates that IP management is being affected by digitalization in a significant way and that all players are up to the challenge, fully embrac­ing it. But it shows some­thing else, too: that law firms are more open about outsourcing IP services, while corporations tread cautiously around this area.

Professionals from all areas of IP management and all countries are invited to download the study free of charge or register to take part in IP Trend Monitor’s future studies here.
