The World Trademark Review (WTR) is the definitive guide to trademark professionals all over the world and they have recently published the annual report on 2022 WTR 1000 – The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals. The criteria of rankings were based upon such factors as depth of expertise, market presence, and the level of work, alongside positive peer and client feedback.
We are honored and proud that our firm and attorneys are recognised among the leading professionals in Latvia. In particular PĒTERSONA PATENTS – AAA LAW and its leading professionals are ranked in Tier 1 (Gold) category. According to the WTR guide:
With a rich tradition of excellence across all aspects of trademark practice, Petersona Patents – AAA Law has established itself as a premier destination for an attentive and first-class service. As testament to this, many of its prestigious clients have stayed loyal to the group for decades; for example, it oversees Orkla Confectionery and Snacks’ portfolio and is Pernod Ricard’s preferred agent in Latvia. The ensemble also packs a serious punch on the contentious front and recently represented Bacardi & Company before both the customs authorities and the courts. The first port of call for all three entities is Gatis Meržvinskis, “a super-skilled and exceptional litigator who treats every case as if it were his own and fights tooth and nail for clients. Even when a case looks hopeless, Gatis never gives up and firmly believes in the IP that he is so intent on protecting.” Flanking him is Kristīne Ostrovska (now Viļķina), a former deputy director at the Patent Office. The savvy, strategically minded counsellor recently helped Nike’s official distributor in the Baltics to overcome a refusal of its trademark application on absolutegrounds.
We also highlight the fact that our trademark and design attorney, managing partner Gatis Meržvinskis has received a gold tier in the individual nomination. Also the trademark and design attorney, partner Kristīne Ostrovska (now Viļķina) has received a bronze tier in the individual nomination.
We thank WTR for including us in the survey and the annual guide. Furthermore, we are also grateful to our clients and associates with whom we have established a successful and long-term collaboration.
