In its recently released guide, World Trademark Review named Pillsbury a top trademark practice in California and singled out Richard Kirkpatrick, Vijay Toke, Edward Cavazos and Patrick Jennings as leading practitioners in the field. WTR is the definitive go-to resource for those seeking world-class legal trademark expertise.

In its profile, WTR noted that Pillsbury has 100 IP practitioners in the U.S., Europe and Asia, putting the firm in the “pole position” to manage global trademark portfolios. It reported that San Francisco partner Richard Kirkpatrick dissects portfolios with a fine-toothed comb, providing clear and straightforward counsel. The publication also quoted one source as saying that San Francisco counsel Vijay Toke “always manages to craft a genius strategy. He excels in David-versus-Goliath matters.”

The review also noted that Austin managing partner Ed Cavazos is an abundant source of insight on trademark, copyright and internet law and that Patrick Jennings, a DC partner, is well positioned to assist at every stage of a brand’s lifecycle.
