Kelly IP Recognized as One of the Top 5 National Trademark Firms by the 2019 World Trademark Review

Kelly IP has again been recognized as a top-tier trademark law firm both nationally and in the Washington, DC area by the 2019 World Trademark Review 1000 (WTR 1000).

  • Nationally, for the second year in a row, Kelly IP was recognized as one of only five “Gold” status trademark firms in the country, WTR 1000’s highest national ranking.
  • In the Washington, DC area, for the fifth consecutive year, Kelly IP was recognized as one of only three “Gold” status firms in both trademark categories—trademark enforcement/litigation and trademark prosecution/strategy.

The WTR 1000 report had high praise for Kelly IP, providing the following comments based on client feedback:

  • “Over the past five years Kelly IP has developed a reputation for excellence. It provides top-tier trademark, unfair competition, false advertising and copyright services, but its particular niche lies in internet-related matters.”
  • With acute business sense, an expeditious response rate and a strong grasp of commercial realities the firm is a trusted ally for brand owners of all sizes.” 
  • “While the “Kelly IP” team is compact it ‘punches well above its weight’ and is the place to go for big-ticket disputes.”

Dave Kelly, managing partner of Kelly IP, said “We are excited to be honored by WTR 1000 as one of its five top-tier national trademark firms.  We are especially proud of the recognition that a boutique firm like Kelly IP is identified a “go-to firm” for “big-ticket disputes.”
