Law firm making its mark


A leading local law firm has featured in the rankings of the biggest trade mark filers in the UK for the first time.

Stephens Scown was ranked among the top 100 firms filing trade marks in the UK and EU, achieving the highest ranking for a firm based in Devon and Cornwall.

Stephens Scown was ranked at #41 for EU trade mark filings and #61 for UK filings. The rankings were compiled by Corsearch for the Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys and are based on trade mark filings in 2015.

Ben Travers, partner and head of intellectual property and IT at Stephens Scown, said: “It is really encouraging to be listed among the biggest trade mark filers in the country. This shows the growth of our intellectual property team and is also testament to the calibre of our clients.”
