World Trademark Review (WTR) has recognized Beggs & Lane partner Stephen D. Wilson in the 2020 edition of “WTR 1000: The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals,” its annual list of the world’s top trademark practitioners.

WTR notes that “Stephen Wilson leads the IP group at one of Florida’s oldest firms, Beggs & Lane. Excellent at spotting issues and problem solving–and someone who sees the big picture–Wilson is in his element when bringing coherence to large portfolios; he is also a dab hand on non-traditional trademarks.”

WTR publishes World Trademark Review magazine, and selects leading trademark attorneys and firms in over 80 jurisdictions around the world for recognition in its annual WTR 1000.  According to WTR, “[i]ndividual practitioners, law firms and trademark attorney practices qualify for inclusion in the WTR 1000 solely on receiving sufficient positive feedback from market sources.”  WTR conducts “extensive” research involving “over 1,500 face-to-face and telephone interviews with trademark specialists across the globe.”

Steve serves as Practice Group Manager for the Intellectual Property group at Beggs & Lane.  He has practiced law for over 20 years, and represents clients throughout the USA and internationally in connection with intellectual property (IP) and other matters.
