The 2018 edition of World Trademark Review 1000 (WTR) has recognized Lane Powell as a top trademark law firm in Oregon and Washington for a fifth consecutive year, naming Ken Davis, Fran Jagla, Parna Mehrbani and Paul Swanson as among the world’s leading trademark professionals.
WTR commended the firm for our “long and proven track record protecting, enforcing and monetizing brands,” noting that our IP Litigation and IP Transactions Teams “ensure that clients receive bespoke advice, while each team works hand in hand with the other so that the guidance is always holistic.”
Davis is recognized for his “formidable firepower in nail-biting courtroom battles,” and IP Transactions Team Chair Jagla is commended for her experience in the pharmaceutical industry with a “flair for IP matters complicated by regulatory concerns.” Mehrbani is lauded for her work ethic and first-class client service, who “has the ability to break down complicated legal jargon and explain things clearly and succinctly in an organized way, as well as being able to react when something unexpected comes up.” Swanson’s focus on IP in the agribusiness sector is highlighted, including commentary that “he knows more than virtually anybody else when it comes to brand identity suits involving fruits and vegetables.”
