Ann and L&A were highly ranked for trademark enforcement and litigation, as well as prosecution and strategy in WTR’s 2018 publication. The report notes that “L&A understands that its advice serves as part of a client’s greater, overall plan and it gets how matters will impact your business – its price is right and the value is high.” Enthusiastic clients have commented, “[Ann] creates global strategies not just from a legal standpoint but also from a commercial one, and is always budget aware.” “Never filing a trademark just for the sake of doing so, she provides valuable insight and can stop fraudulent activities at minimum cost; she is also constantly reachable and replies promptly to inquiries.”
