2018 WTR 1000 Ranks Leason Ellis among Top 12 Law Firms in New York (the only law firm outside NYC) for Trademark Enforcement and Litigation

"From its White Plains base, Leason Ellis offers 'an in-depth service for a broad variety of IP-related issues' at rates far more competitive than most rival firms. Its lean size belies the immense talent housed here, with all its lawyers boasting stellar credentials. As a prime example, Martin Schwimmer is 'an expert in domain name disputes' who helped to create the final version of the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy. 'One of the sharpest minds in trademark law in the United States, he has a particularly in-depth understanding of international law.' 'His overall performance is top-notch thanks to his deep knowledge, savvy business instincts and ability to keep a level head when others are losing theirs.' Trademark and copyright group head Peter Sloane is extolled for his comprehensive understanding of the law. 'He is efficient, thorough and extremely practical in his guidance.' The main thrust of Sloaneā€™s practice lies in high-level counselling and sophisticated litigation. For the toughest battles, he relies on the assistance of Yuval Marcus, who chairs the litigation practice. A prolific speaker and author, Marcus has honed his contentious nous across the IP spectrum. Inspiring confidence when it comes to both prosecution and portfolio management, Karin Segall rounds off the Leason Ellis set. 'A reliable and invaluable partner, she is an expert of her field and her advice is informed by common-sense business considerations. She also does an excellent job of working within whatever constraints may be applicable, be they related to timing or budget.'"  - WTR
