February 6, 2019 (Cincinnati, OH) – Frost Brown Todd (FBT), Columbus member Samantha (Sam) Quimby, and Cincinnati Member Monica Dias have made the final rankings in the ninth edition of World Trademark Review 1000 (WTR 1000). The WTR 1000 provides the most comprehensive listing of the leading private practice practitioners and firms in more than 80 jurisdictions around the world.

Positive feedback on the work of FBT, Quimby and Dias during a four-month review process involving face-to-face and telephone interviews qualified them for the list. Quimby and Dias were selected based on their depth of expertise, market presence and level of work. Dias makes her ranking debut with positive praise from clients on her ability to anticipate any threat to a client’s existing trademark rights in addition to providing sound and practical portfolio management advice. The “supremely talented” Quimby, who heads the trademark group from FBT’s Columbus office, makes the rankings for the fifth consecutive year with a special nod to her unmatched knowledge of top-level-domain issues.

“FBT is honored to be included in the WTR 1000 again this year,” said Quimby. “To know that clients and peers continue to take time out of their busy schedules to provide such positive feedback on our capabilities as trademark attorneys continue to be both professionally rewarding and personally humbling. This recognition also reflects the talent of our overall trademark team, everyone from our legal assistants and docketing staff, to our paralegals, associates, and members. Our success as a trademark practice is a team effort and is the result of everyone’s hard work and dedication across multiple offices – not just those offices sitting in Ohio.”

FBT’s focus on providing clients seasoned trademark practitioners instead of general business lawyers or commercial litigators continues to be a key factor for clients and peers. The WTR 1000 also notes that FBT’s central location in the Midwest allows the firm to more effectively assist national and global brands in a wide variety of trademark issues.  Indeed, the trademark group works as a team across multiple offices, including Columbus, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Louisville, Nashville, and Dallas.
