WASHINGTON, D.C. – April 28, 2011 – Holland & Knight has been named one of the world's top trademark law firms in the inaugural edition of the World Trademark Review 1000 – The Definitive Guide to Trademark Legal Services.

The research also singles out Holland & Knight partner Paul Kilmer as being identified by clients as “articulate, practical, analytical and a very effective negotiator.”
The WTR 1000 is the first and only standalone ranking to focus exclusively on trademark practices and practitioners. The magazine's research covers more than 50 key jurisdictions and identifies the leading practitioners and their firms in both contentious and non-contentious work.
WTR's research was conducted over three months through telephone interviews and correspondence with hundreds of attorneys and their clients involved with trademarks matters. Individuals qualify for a ranking in the WTR 1000 upon receiving sufficient positive feedback from market sources with knowledge of their practice and the market within which they operate. Firms qualify for a listing on the basis of their depth of expertise, market presence and the level of work on which they are typically instructed.
