ATLANTA (February 3)Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton once again received the highest possible rankings in the renowned 2016 Managing Intellectual Property IP Stars Trademark Ranking. For the third consecutive year, Kilpatrick Townsend’s Trademark practice is ranked Tier One in both Trademark Prosecution and Trademark Contentious in the U.S. National category. Evidencing the comprehensive nature of the firm’s trademark practice, Kilpatrick Townsend is one of only two firms in the U.S. to achieve the top rating in both categories.

IP Stars is Managing Intellectual Property’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:

  • 2016 World Trademark Review National Tier 1 ranking;
  • US News - Best Lawyers ® 2016 “Best Law Firms”: National Tier 1 ranking;
