World Trademark Review once again recognized Weil as a leading firm for trademark enforcement and litigation in New York, upon the release of its 2016 WTR 1000 - The World's Leading Trademark Professionals, now in its fifth edition. The publication also identified IP & Media practice head Bruce Rich and partner Randi Singer as amongst the best practitioners in the field.
WTR lauded Mr. Rich as “innovative,” and highlighted both his longstanding work for Facebook, and his ongoing defense of Alibaba in significant trademark litigation brought by the luxury brands Gucci, Bottega Veneta and Yves Saint Laurent.
In referring to Ms. Singer’s roles in Facebook’s purchase of WhatsApp and Yahoo!’s acquisition of Tumblr, WTR described her as a “trademark and transactional star” with “commercial smarts.”
WTR is an independent daily news and information service dedicated exclusively to reporting on strategic and legal trademark issues for in-house and private practitioners internationally.
