Sam Ibrahim and Bryce Maynard, shareholders in the firm's Intellectual Property section, have once again been named to World Trademark Review’s WTR 1000, which recognizes the top trademark professionals across the globe.
Dispensing comprehensive brand services to rights holders across a kaleidoscopic range of industries, Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney has deep institutional trademark experience and is a safe pair of hands for any brief. The team has global horizons and an intuitive understanding of the legal and cultural nuances that play out when managing rights overseas; its Sino-US trademark expertise is particularly notable and has been cultivated through extensive engagement in prosecuting, enforcing and litigating trademarks in China. A recent restructure of the IP practice leadership set-up has seen Bassam Ibrahim assume the mantle of trademark group captain. “Responsive, detail oriented, pragmatic and highly effective”, he is well suited to the role. Giving “clear advice that can quickly be absorbed by business teams”, Ibrahim works collaboratively with clients on all aspects of trademark protection, enforcement and monetisation. He regularly links up with Bryce Maynard, a talented litigator who doubles up as a value-adding counsellor. Their clients include Noosa Yoghurt, Money Mart Financial Services, KAO Corporation and the Seventh Day Adventist Network of Churches.
