Curtis Lawyers Recommended in 2017 Edition of World Trademark Review 1000 as Leading Professionals

New York-based partner Michael Graif and counsel Eric Stenshoel have been recognized as “Recommended Experts” in the 2017 edition of World Trademark Review 1000 – The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals. In its editorial on Curtis, WTR 1000 says:

‘Curtis is a top choice for brand owners, thanks to its sizeable network of international offices, client-centric practitioners and virtually unblemished record in disputes. All these factors came into play when it helped MSC Industrial Direct Co to stamp out infringement of its mark by a rival based in Germany. IP group chair Michael Graif masterminded the win. “Responsive and easy to deal with”, he has “a breadth of experience in trademark work and can clearly explain legal concepts and strategies to people who may not be well versed in law.” Patrons appreciate his “remarkable insight into matters”: “He epitomises the term ‘IP expert’.” Partner Eric Stenshoel focuses on the international prosecution and management of brands. “Quick to reply and with a font of experience in intellectual property, he is a real one-stop shop for time-sensitive advice.” “He is cordial and polite, with a great sense of humour. He really becomes engaged with your business and his client-handling skills are outstanding. You can have total confidence in his guidance.”’
