Spoor & Fisher in Top 15 of Who’s Who Legal global trade mark practitioner listings
If size is the sole basis for measuring the abilities of a law firm, then Spoor & Fisher punches far above its weight. This conclusion is supported by the listings released in the latest edition of Who’s Who Legal – an international publication that is highly regarded for its integrity and credibility.
The latest Who’s Who Legal listings include intellectual property practitioners from some of the giants of the legal world – making it all the more remarkable that a specialist practice such as Spoor & Fisher should count among the Top 15 worldwide in the field of trade marks. This ranking is based on the firm having no fewer than seven partners specialising in trade mark law listed currently in the publication:
- Stephen Goldberg
- Jean McIvor
- Louise Myburgh
- Kay Rickelman
- Charles Webster
- Eben van Wyk
- Louis van Wyk
Dr Owen Dean, who has retired from the partnership, is also listed as a consultant to the firm.
While Who’s Who Legal has not published “Top 15” lists in other fields of practice in its latest edition, it is noteworthy that Spoor & Fisher also has two patent specialists listed:
Specialist practitioners are only selected for listing if they satisfy independent research criteria based on surveys conducted among general counsel and private practice lawyers across the globe. While Spoor & Fisher may not match the size of some of the firms at the top of the Who’s Who Legal listings, we are proud to have such a concentration of talent, knowledge and overall excellence in our ranks.
