The WTR list cites the 1000 ‘leading trademark practitioners’ in the world. Among top practitioners, they noted that practice head Jordan LaVine is “an inspirational group leader” and “incredibly practical, looks at issues through a business lens and analyses risk precisely.” They go on to say that he also “has good interpersonal skills but can be aggressive when need be.” WTR notes that Alexis Arena is also on hand to guide and protect and knows a great deal about internet law and data privacy and swiftly shuts down online infringement threats. When referring to the firm’s trademark team, WTR notes that “fleet of foot and efficient, the set resolves complicated trademark problems quickly and effectively while putting in place strong safeguards for the future.”
