Blank Rome Intellectual Property Partners Recognized in World Trademark Review Global Leaders 2021

Blank Rome LLP is pleased to announce that intellectual property partners Matthew A. Homyk, Timothy D. Pecsenye, and David M. Perry, who serves as co-chair of the firm’s Intellectual Property practice, were listed in World Trademark Review (“WTR”) Global Leaders 2021, an annual directory that recognizes the world’s “foremost law firm and corporate trademark experts.”

Now in its third year of publication, WTR Global Leaders draws on its market-leading research projects—WTR 1000 and WTR 300—to identify the “best of the best in trademark practice” who “merit special attention owing not only to their expertise and experience in creating, protecting, managing and enforcing essential brand rights, but also to their ability to innovate, inspire and go above and beyond to deliver for their clients.”

To qualify for inclusion, individuals must be ranked in the gold tier of the WTR 1000, an annual directory in which Blank Rome’s IP practice and attorneys have been annually ranked for eleven consecutive years, with the publication noting:

“Consistency is the watchword for Blank Rome’s all-star trademark line-up. After practising together for many years, its core team members have perfected a refined system of collaboration and established a deep collective understanding of clients’ brands—all of which makes for an efficient, high-quality service. Timothy Pecsenye and David Perry have both chalked up more than two decades at Blank Rome and bring strong leadership to the practice. Pecsenye’s litigation talents are a major asset to the group; as are Perry’s hybrid counselling, prosecution, portfolio management and contentious skills. Coming in for special praise, Perry is described by the market as a ‘level-headed, smart and creative lawyer who cuts to the chase.’ Rising through the ranks over nearly 10 years with the firm, Matthew Homyk earned a well-deserved promotion to partner in January 2020. He has a facility for cutting-edge social media and internet issues and enforcement in counterfeiting hotspots such as China.”
