Russell Pangborn recognized in 2021 edition of WTR (World Trademark Review) Global Leaders

Seed IP partner Russell Pangborn has been recognized by World Trademark Review in the recently published third edition of WTR Global Leaders 2021, a unique publication that brings together the world’s foremost law firm and corporate trademark experts, allowing the wider community to benefit from their insight, experience, and perspectives. WTR Global Leaders 2021 draws on World Trademark Review’s market-leading research projects, the WTR 1000 and WTR 300, to identify the 'best of the best' in trademark practice, in a single publication. All of those listed merit special attention owing not only to their expertise and experience in relation to creating, protecting, managing and enforcing critical brand rights, but also to their ability to innovate, inspire and go above and beyond to deliver for their clients. WTR Global Leaders 2021 therefore aims to illuminate what makes these individuals the leading lights of the industry and provide their critical insights into the strategic management of trademarks and – crucially – how to carve out a leadership career path.

The WTR Global Leaders 2021 research directory, which focuses exclusively on law firm trademark practices and practitioners, identifies the leading players in more than 80 key jurisdictions globally. To do this, the research team at World Trademark Review spent four months corresponding and conducting interviews with hundreds of lawyers, attorneys, and their clients involved with trademarks, as well as gathering written submissions from firms detailing their recent activity in the field.

The individuals who feature in this year’s WTR Global Leaders merit special attention owing not only to their expertise and experience in creating, protecting, managing and enforcing essential brand rights, but also to their ability to innovate, inspire and go above and beyond to deliver for their clients. For this publication, WTR then invited a select number of these elite professionals to reflect on their professional journey and offer insights and guidance into career development, practice management and trademark industry trends. This year, Russ Pangborn was one of the elite professionals chosen to be interviewed.

Seed IP proudly congratulates Russell Pangborn on receiving this honor.
