LAW firm Blake Morgan has been recognised as among the world’s best in trademark and copyright law, with a listing for its intellectual property specialists in a leading global directory.

The firm, which has an office in Portsmouth, saw its intellectual property group ranked in the seventh edition of World Trademark Review 1000 – The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals.

The guide recognises Jill Bainbridge, partner and head of intellectual property, and Ben Evans, a dual-qualified solicitor and chartered trademark attorney.

The guide also remarks on the firm’s expertise across a range of sectors, commenting: ‘Blake Morgan’s in-depth understanding of the charities sector sets it apart on the highly competitive UK trade mark scene.

‘It strikes a fine balance, representing non-profits in a commercially astute way, but without being heavy-handed.’
