Congratulations to BakerHostetler Partners Miriam Beezy, Nancy Frandsen, Robert Horowitz, Heather McDonald and Deborah Wilcox, and Counsel John Mueller, who have been named to the World Trademark Review’s WTR 1000—The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals.

Beezy is listed as a top attorney in California who is “incredibly proficient at juggling the global portfolios of international titans.”

Horowitz, who earned silver status in “prosecution and strategy” in New York, was reported to be “a dab hand at both prosecution and contentious matters.”

McDonald, “a standout in the anti-counterfeiting field, especially for fashion brands and luxury goods,” earned a silver ranking in “enforcement and litigation” in New York and was recognized nationally in anti-counterfeiting.

Wilcox, who is “incredibly well-respected” and “especially well versed in the intricacies of online enforcement and e-commerce,” earned a gold ranking in Ohio.

Mueller, whose “practice runs the gamut of intellectual property, although catering to the needs of consumer goods companies is a forte,” earned a silver ranking in Ohio.

In New York, the firm earned bronze rankings in “trademark enforcement and litigation” and in “prosecution and strategy.” The firm also earned rankings in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

“It’s gratifying to see our attorneys praised for their dedication to our clients’ interests and their success in protecting trademarks around the world,” said Wilcox, national leader of BakerHostetler’s Trademark team. “This hard-working team has positioned our practice as one of the best in the country.”
