Leading law firm Ashfords LLP is proud to have been positioned 63rd in the CITMA 2018 Top 100 UK Trade Mark filers.

Ashfords was also positioned 79th in the CITMA 2018 Top 100 EU Trade Mark filers.

Ashfords filed more UK trade marks than any other law firm based in the South West of England.

The firm also filed more UK trade marks than a number of other (much larger) law firms, including DLA Piper, Bristows, Hogan Lovells, Eversheds Sutherland, Osborne Clarke and Womble Bond Dickinson.

The figures are compiled independently by Corsearch and are published in the Chartered Institute of TM Attorneys ('CITMA') Review publication (May 2019 edition). They independently measure the performance of UK law firms and UK TM Attorney firms filing UK and EU trade marks during 2018.

Carl Steele (Partner and Head of Trade Marks at Ashfords LLP) commented:

"It has been another successful year for the Ashfords’ Brands team. These achievements are a credit to them, delivering an excellent service to our clients, whilst helping them to protect their valuable IP.

We continue to grow our trade marks practice year-on-year and our rankings show we are independently recognised as being amongst the top TM firms in the UK."
