In addition to the firm’s ranking, three of Miller Thomson’s lawyers were also recognized by WTR as leading trademark professionals in the Prosecution & Strategy area. David Schnurr “is synonymous with excellent client service” and “has been instrumental in simplifying processes and putting things into layman’s terms to assist clients in protecting the aspects of their products that (are) important.” Catherine Dennis Brooks “oversees prosecution portfolios in a cost-effective, efficient manner, taking care to send timely reminders, making sound recommendations on filing and registration strategy and highlighting key differences between US and Canadian filing requirements.” Wayne Logan is also noted as having represented “a who’s who of A-list clients over the years.”

The WTR 1000 research directory, which focuses exclusively on trademark practices and practitioners, has firmly established itself as the definitive ‘go-to’ resource for those seeking legal trademark expertise. World Trademark Review bases its recommendations on exhaustive qualitative research identifying the firms and individuals garnering substantial positive feedback from the market.
