Two lawyers in Locke Lord’s London office have been recognised among the world’s leading trademark groups in the 2020 edition of the World Trademark Review (WTR) 1000, ranked in United Kingdom: England.

Ben Hitchens was recognised by WTR 1000 for enforcement and litigation. The publication cites his “no-nonsense advice” and describes him as “unflappable” and “an outstanding lawyer and IP specialist” who “is especially potent when enforcing European trademarks.”

Paolo Andreottola was recognised for prosecution and strategy. He was commended for his “broad experience, high proficiency and trademark know-how,” which “have built him a truly impressive stable of multinational patrons.”
