WTR 1000, the only definitive guide exclusively dedicated to identifying the world’s leading trademark legal services providers has included Ana-Maria Baciu, Cosmina Simion and Andreea Bende in the Top Trademark Professionals, in the gold and respectively the silver band.
WTR has also once again recognized the value of Simion & Baciu, and included the firm in the Silver Band in both Trademark Enforcement and Litigation and Trademark Prosecution and Strategy sections.
According to WTR “Simion & Baciu is a firm distinguished by excellence, expertise and hard work.” Its one-stop shop service resonates with prestigious multinationals in sectors ranging from automotive to food and beverages, banking and finance, media and entertainment, and retail and fashion. Many of the portfolios under its care are significant in size and value; while on the contentious front, it has lately played a part in some potentially precedential cases. Pulling the strings are Cosmina Simion and Ana-Maria Baciu. Simion operates with equal dexterity on both sides of the contentious divide, and has carved a particular niche in the gaming industry; while a stint in-house at a US company has given her an insider’s appreciation of the ambitions and concerns of international brand owners. “One of the best IP lawyers in Romania”, the versatile Baciu attracts warm plaudits: “Her advice is proactive and easily implemented, and she provides a very prompt service. She is extremely business-oriented, has a flexible approach and is a good negotiator and mediator.” Also on deck is adept portfolio manager and office action aficionado Andreea Bende – an “excellent and highly experienced trademark practitioner, providing prompt, precise and reliable advice and effective assistance, notably in opposition matters”.
WTR 1000 identifies the leading trademark law firms and individuals in over 80 global jurisdictions and US states. Individual practitioners, law firms and trademark attorney practices qualify for inclusion in the WTR 1000 solely on receiving sufficient positive feedback from market sources.
