The World Trademark Review 1000 rankings have been released and we are happy to announce that FRKelly has been noted as a “gold agency” in all aspects of trade mark practice.
The publication praises us as “the leading trademark agency in Ireland” with special mentions made to some of our trade mark attorneys, namely Mary Bleahene, Niamh Hall, Shane Smyth and Brenda O’Regan (pictured bottom, left-to-right).
The full excerpt from the publication can be seen below.
We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank our clients and colleagues who make our success, and joyous acknowledgements like this, possible. Please take this note as a sincere thank you from all of us at FRKelly.
“The leading trademark agency in Ireland”, FRKelly is “experienced in all aspects of trademark practice”. Interviewees hail its imposing market presence and meticulous approach to filing. Central to its continued success is indisputably Niamh Hall, “one of the best trademark professionals in the business with an outstanding reputation”. The co-author of key tomes Intellectual Property Law in Ireland and Concise European Trade Mark and Design Law, she is in hot demand for her clear, pragmatically attuned guidance. Another “leading partner in the team”, Shane Smyth was chairman of the Trademarks Committee during the 1996 passage of the Trademarks Act and is intimately familiar with its provisions. Brenda O’Regan impresses on both sides of the contentious/non-contentious divide; she has lately been working with the Irish Domain Name Registry on a policy development process. Designs doyenne Mary Bleahene has chalked up over two decades in the field.”
