Bryan Cave is recommended in the World Trademark Review’s WTR 1000 list. The firm’s Trademark Practice as well as three individual attorneys are listed. Phoenix Partner George Chen; San Francisco Managing Partner Marcy Bergman; and New York Partner and Intellectual Property Group Leader Erik Kahn are listed as "recommended experts."

The publication states:

"Bryan Cave has buckets of international expertise and many significant trademark clients. It is a strong group and the presence of the excellent George Chen further raises its profile. The versatile Chen is an exceptionally strong patent and trademark lawyer, and especially effective when it comes to litigation. His dual hard and soft-IP profile qualifies him to manage complex mixed portfolios, while his practice is fully adapted to the needs of sophisticated 21st century clients – internet and new media mandates are dispatched with particular alacrity."

Other recommended experts:

"Peers are effusive in their praise of Bryan Cave’s San Francisco managing partner Marcy Bergman, describing her as ‘fantastic’ and ‘amazing’ – she is a cherished mentor to many a California trademark lawyer. She heads up the retail and consumer goods team at the firm, regularly defending the industry’s biggest names to the hilt in tough litigations."

"Standout practitioner Erik Kahn, Bryan Cave’s global IP chief, is an incredibly smart attorney who is highly capable in various areas of trademark law."

 Now in its sixth edition, WTR 1000 – The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals 2016 is the only standalone research directory to focus exclusively on trademark practices and practitioners.
