“This is a fantastic achievement for the trademark team. We have only been around for a fraction of the time of many of the bigger firms and only filed our first trade mark in 2007. Yet in just over 10 years we have filed and secured significantly more trade marks than many of our peers, demonstrating the quality of our advice and service.”

Europe’s highest-ranking filers of trade marks have been listed for the first time, and Cheltenham based Albright IP has been ranked within the top 250 attorney filing firms in Europe. Collated by BIPP, IP data specialists based in Belgium, the figures are based on the total number of active trade marks on the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) registers.

Although Albright IP has been established for ten years, it was up against many firms who have been filing trade marks for more than five decades, and overtaken many of them, proudly not only coming within the top 250, but achieving a ranking of 187.

Robert Games, Managing Director, Albright IP. “This is a fantastic achievement for the trademark team. We have only been around for a fraction of the time of many of the bigger firms and only filed our first trade mark in 2007. Yet in just over 10 years we have filed and secured significantly more trade marks than many of our peers, demonstrating the quality of our advice and service. What’s even more impressive is that this feat has been achieved by just two of our Directors! Julia House and Katie Oliver have between them filed every one of our EUIPO and WIPO trade marks to secure our position in the Top 250 EU Trade Mark Attorney Firms.”

In the relevant period, the trade mark team at Albright filed over 1,350 trade marks in total and achieved their top 250 ranking through hard work, determination and a solid client base according to Julia House, Trade Mark Attorney and Director at Albright IP, who commented: “We have a great breadth of experience across all business sectors and our success with securing clients comes from our Director led approach. We stay personally involved with our clients, not only registering their trade marks but continuing to advise and monitor the relevance to their business at every step.”

Headquartered in Cheltenham, Albright IP employs 24 people and has seen significant growth over the past few years. The firm now works with over 2000 companies across the world, including Europe, the US and China.

Julia added “We have very strong international links with law firms across many countries. This close working approach means that our clients can tap into local commercial advice wherever needed, providing them with the best available trade mark advice for moving forward– which ultimately means we have a very high success rate when filing, prosecuting and enforcing trademarks.”
