Frost Brown Todd (FBT) and Columbus Member Samantha (Sam) Quimby have made the final rankings in the seventh edition of World Trademark Review 1000 (WTR 1000), released yesterday. The WTR 1000 spotlights the firms and individuals that are deemed outstanding in the trademark practice area and remains the only standalone publication to recommend individual practitioners and their firms exclusively in the trademark field, identifying the leading players in over 72 key jurisdictions globally.

Quimby, who leads FBT’s Trademark Group, predominantly focuses her practice on trademark prosecution, counseling, licensing, enforcement and litigation. She also assists clients with anti-counterfeiting measures in the U.S. and abroad, and has worked on cases involving ongoing enforcement efforts for world-famous brands. She is one of seven trademark professionals in Ohio to be ranked in the “gold” band, reflecting the highest level of knowledge, market presence and level of work. Among others, she is recognized for “her striking knowledge of trademark law,” and “masterful grasp of branding issues.”

“We are extremely proud to have our firm and Sam as an individual attorney recognized in the WTR 1000 for a third consecutive year,” says Ann Schoen, Chair of FBT’s Intellectual Property Law and Litigation Practice Group. “This distinction is the result of our team’s outstanding work and countless accomplishments over many years.”

Individual practitioners, law firms and trademark attorney practices qualify for inclusion in the WTR 1000 by receiving sufficient positive feedback from market sources. The extensive research process was conducted over a four-month period by a team of full-time analysts, and involved face-to-face and telephone interviews with trademark specialists across the globe. Firms qualify for a listing on the basis of their depth of expertise, market presence and the level of work on which they are typically instructed. To learn more, visit
