World Trademark Review (WTR), a bi-monthly global magazine focusing on trademark related news, has released the 2020 edition of The World Trademark Review 1000 – The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals. Marksmen, a world leader in brand protection, was once again voted as “highly recommended,” and listed in the top position in the Online Brand Enforcement category. Marksmen also held that position last year in 2019, the first year the guide was issued.

"It's such an honor to be at the top of this list again," says Marksmen's CEO Jeff Crapo.

For 22 years, Marksmen has been an industry leader in intellectual property investigations, acquisitions and other brand protection services. From trademark "use” investigations, to test purchases, on-site investigations, domain name acquisitions and online brand-monitoring, companies around the globe rely on Marksmen as a partner in protecting intellectual property.

So what do Marksmen clients have to say?

"I highly recommend using Marksmen. They are a great resource for clearance and use investigations. The reports are clear and summarized in just the way we need." T. T., Civil Enforcement Manger, luxury fashion brand.

“I’ve been a client of Marksmen for a decade and have referred them many times. They are my secret weapon for domain name acquisitions.” J.E., General Partner at a Bay Area venture capital firm.


Marksmen has completed nearly 100,000 intellectual property cases since 1998, including the acquisitions and protection of some the most famous brands in the world. "Over 1 billion people actively use domain names, social media handles, trademarks, and other intellectual property secured by Marksmen," says Jeff Crapo, Marksmen's CEO.

The World Trademark Review 1000 is the definitive guide to the world's leading trademark professionals, featuring intellectual property law firms and trademark service providers who provide exemplary service. The publication therefore serves as a one-stop source of reference for anyone seeking trademark legal services.

To create this resource, as in year’s past, extensive qualitative research was done by WTR to identify leading firms and service providers. Over 1,500 industry experts, including corporate counsel and trademark attorneys, were interviewed to determine the rankings this year. The research was conducted entirely independently of any commercial considerations. All firms and individuals ranked in the publication are included because the market identified them as industry leaders.

World Trademark Review is a part of Globe Business Media Group.
