World Trademark Review Rating 2017
- IP & Technology

International player Bech-Bruun holds pride of place in the upper echelons of the Danish market. More than 30,000 domestic and global trademarks are adroitly managed by a host of top strategists, supported by hard-hitting contentious aces; while an expanding China desk is cementing its profile in the Far East. Renaissance man Claus Barrett Christiansen is a magnet for new business and has his eye trained firmly on East Asia as a member of the China desk. “His broad experience stands out – he is really with it in both litigation and prosecution. He has bags of strategic know-how and brings that into the courtroom.”
