Four partners in Borden Ladner Gervais LLP's Intellectual Property Group have been recognized by WTR 1000 , a new legal ranking publication and the first to be dedicated exclusively to identifying the leading trademark lawyers and firms. Bradley Freedman, Mary Jane Lemenchick, Kathryn Szymczyk and Gordon Zimmerman were all recognized by the publication as leading trademark lawyers and BLG received "particular praise for its busy non-contentious practice." The rankings were determined by a team of full-time analysts who conducted hundreds of interviews with trademark specialists across the world.
