World Trademark Review 1000
The 2019 World Trademark Review 1000 recognises RPC's diverse skill set in trademark, digital media, retail and advertising law.
RPC has an extremely broad knowledge base when it comes to brands, as well as a very diverse skill set – it understands every nuance of trademark, digital media and advertising law and demonstrates rare dexterity in strategic advisory work, litigation and commercial transactions. Making its package even more compelling, the team flaunts superb industry expertise in the publishing, sports, retail, food and drink, and luxury sectors, enabling it to serve up scrupulously commercial advice – the thing for which it is most famous.
Jeremy Drew, David Cran, Paul Joseph, Ciara Cullen and Oliver Bray form an all-star team that provides a “thorough, high-quality, efficient and proactive service”.
Drew heads the group and is a sought-after source of insight and analysis on IP strategy; he is also in hot demand for representation in multi-jurisdictional disputes. Sources laud him as being “a great team leader who is rigorously results-oriented”.
David Cran and Paul Joseph
Cran and Joseph are touchpoints for many top technology innovators, which they advise internationally on disputes and transactions; Cran adds value by providing in-house teams with training and regular IP updates; Joseph is a leader in the media space and handles all trademark and brand-related work for a major publisher.
Cullen, meanwhile is an authority on sponsorship and endorsement arrangements and other commercial IP matters and has lately been advising Champagne Perrier Jouet on advertising issues, endorsement contracts and brand activation and social media campaigns. She also puts her finely honed negotiation skills to good use when resolving cross-border trademark disputes.
Bray takes charge of RPC’s commercial team: to big brands, he is a top expert in areas such as advertising and marketing law, data protection and digital media.
