J A Kemp has once again been recognised as a Highly Recommended firm in this year's edition of World Trademark Review 1000. The publication comments that the firm is the leading firm in the so-called ‘golden triangle’ of London, Oxford and Cambridge. It goes on to say that “outstanding performance is another important thread in the J A Kemp narrative”. All lead partners in the team score excellent feedback.
Head of the J A Kemp Trade Marks and Designs group, James Fish, is praised for providing “an absolutely first-class service”. “When you want to know whether a name or concept can be protected, he gives quick, accurate insights at an early stage, so you don’t waste time and money going down blind alleys; when you do alight on something that works, he gives excellent guidance every step of the way. He’s extremely commercial and committed to his clients.”
Ben Mooneapillay is described as “rigorous, on-point and utterly dependable”. “He sets the gold standard. His advice is insightful, incisive and invaluable and he’s highly responsive, speedy and commercial too.”
Charlotte Stirling is commended for being “extremely proactive and cost-conscious”. “She consistently distinguishes herself from other outside counsel because of her exceptional quality work.”
Tom Albertini is identified as “a rare breed – extremely skilled technically and a natural people person who is excellent at dealing with clients”. The publication comments that Tom “provides level-headed and clear advice and is just top-drawer.”
J A Kemp was joined on 4 Feb by Aaron Newell whom the directory describes as an “exceptional, world-class adviser”. The publication notes that Aaron is uniquely dual-qualified to practise in three jurisdictions: he is a Canadian barrister and solicitor, an Australian solicitor and trade mark attorney and a UK solicitor and trade mark attorney.
