HLK ranked Tier 1 in Trade Mark disputes by IP Stars

More good news! HLK has also been recognised in IP Stars’ trade mark firm rankings, the first set of rankings released for the 2024 edition.

These IP Stars 2024 rankings recognise the recommended patent and trade mark attorney firms for trade mark filing and for prosecution and disputes work across different jurisdictions.

We’ve been awarded tier 1 and tier 2 recommendations for firms in England in these categories:

  • Trade mark disputes – Tier 1
  • Trade mark prosecution – Tier 2

More than 1,700 firms participated in the research between October 2023 to February 2024, but only the most recommended were included.

About IP Stars

The IP Stars guide, published by the same team behind Managing IP, has become one of the leading specialist ranking publications for the IP profession.

The research covers over six IP practice areas and more than 70 jurisdictions, and is conducted rigorously and impartially by research analysts based in London, New York, and Hong Kong. Their methodology includes interviews, email, and online surveys, requesting information from thousands of firms and IP practitioners, as well as their clients.

Only the most recommended firms and practitioners are included in their annual rankings.

You can read more about IP Stars and their 2024 edition on their website.

Upcoming next

IP Stars releases its rankings for various categories between May and September. Up next will be the IP Stars patent firm rankings, due to be released at the end of June.
