2019 WTR 1000 Ranks Leason Ellis among Top Law Firms in New York for Trademark Enforcement and Litigation

"Leason Ellis supports a diverse trademark practice that is showing a lot of momentum in all areas right now. Positive signs of this include taking on additional space and recruiting talent; Lauren Emerson, a former Baker Botts lawyer who is active in INTA and American IP Law Association committees, is one recent arrival. By bringing the latest technology into the practice, Leason Ellis is constantly finding efficiencies; this resonates with in-house counsel, who are increasingly being asked to do more with less. The firm also invests in state-of-the-art security, which brings comfort. Key contacts for clients include Peter Sloane and Karin Segall, who do a bang-up job for Honeywell International, overseeing searching and filing efforts worldwide. Sloane has cultivated a broad-based practice and inspires as chair of the trademark and copyright division. When it comes to trademark registration, Segall is “a terrific resource. She provides prompt and practical advice that is efficient and effective.” On the contentious front, the group’s modus operandi is not to fight everything, but to resolve matters using creative strategies. However, if the conditions for litigation are right, the team strikes hard and fast to get satisfying results. Inculcating this approach as chair of the litigation section is Yuval Marcus. For anything related to domain names, Martin Schwimmer is the person to call. He also spearheads a lot of the firm’s thought-leadership efforts and publishes The Trademark Blog, the longest-standing specialist blog on trademark and copyright law in the world."  - WTR
