Kelly IP Again Recognized as a Top-Tier “Gold” National Trademark Firm by the 2022 World Trademark Review 1000

Kelly IP has again been recognized as a top-tier “Gold” trademark law firm both nationally and in the Washington, DC area by the 2022 World Trademark Review 1000 (WTR 1000).

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

The WTR 1000 report describes Kelly IP as “[a] tailormade strike force for prestigious clients, Kelly IP is a brands boutique that, in under a decade, has cemented its name as a top player. It has a uniquely collaborative culture in which lead relationship partners loop in colleagues to take on the tasks they are best suited to without concern for compensation-related issues. It’s an approach that places clients’ needs front and centre at all times and leads to optimal results, and that is made possible by an absence of the usual bureaucracies associated with BigLaw.”

The WTR 1000, through an extensive research process conducted by a team of analysts that interview and communicate with numerous lawyers and their clients, identifies the leading trademark law firms and lawyers globally. The WTR 1000 2022 results can be found at
