Further recognition for Dehns

Dehns has been recognised once again as a top tier firm by a number of independent researchers and directories

In IAM 1000’s recently published list of world’s leading patent professionals 2016, Dehns has been ranked in the top tier (“Highly recommended”) of UK patent attorneys for prosecution work.

The independent research and review of Dehns concluded that: “Companies seeking tech-savvy patent professionals who provide a highly personalised service will find what they are looking for in Dehns. Established in 1920, the firm now has offices in London, Brighton, Oxford, Manchester and Kent – and one abroad in Germany – making it ideally placed to shepherd clients through both national and EPO processes. At the heart of its patent offering are Christopher Davies and Philip Webber. Davies is an “excellent oral advocate before the EPO; he provides sensible litigation support, with a good dose of common sense”. Webber specialises in the pharmaceutical, biological and biotechnological fields and publishes widely.”

We are justifiably proud of another top tier ranking for our patent business which goes from strength to strength, and which follows top tier rankings in all the major legal and IP directories such as Chambers UK, Legal 500 and Managing Intellectual Property.

On the Trade Mark side of the business, Elaine Deyes, Partner in Dehns Trade Mark Group, was recently selected by peers and clients as being among the world's leading trademark attorneys in the ‘Who’s Who Legal: Trademarks 2016’ global publication, while Roberto Calamita, Head of our Trade Mark Group, was nominated as one of the leading trade mark practitioners by in-house counsel and peers as part of ‘Euromoney’s Trade Mark Expert’s Guide 2016’.

And there’s more… earlier this year, Elaine and fellow Trade Mark Partner Joseph Letang were also singled out and nominated as IP Stars by Managing Intellectual Property.

These achievements, and such high profile recognition of our business and our people, highlight once again that Dehns is a genuine market leader with many of the brightest and best talent that our industry has to offer.
