Andrew Price Named a “Global Leader” by World Trademark Review for Fifth Year in a Row

2 min

Andrew Price, a co-chair of the firm's Trademark Prosecution and Counseling Group, was recognized by World Trademark Review (WTR) as a Global Leader for 2023. This is the fifth year in a row Mr. Price has received this recognition, which honors the world's foremost law firm and corporate trademark experts. WTR hailed Andrew as “one of the most accomplished attorneys in the United States.”

To qualify for inclusion in WTR Global Leaders, individuals must be ranked in the gold tier of the WTR 1000 or appear in the WTR 300, though the Global Leader accolade is even more competitive. The WTR 1000 identifies the leading law firm practitioners and their firms in 80 key jurisdictions, ranking them as bronze, silver, or gold. The WTR 300 identifies the leading corporate trademark professionals.

Having just celebrated 25 years at Venable, Mr. Price described to WTR in the Global Issue the aspects of work he enjoys the most. “I have three answers. First, I am focusing more on helping others further their careers. It is rewarding to see colleagues grow into exceptional lawyers. Second, I enjoy tough matters; finding an angle or leverage to push through an application, win a dispute or achieve a great settlement. Third, I love being creative. Our WellbrandTM naming service, where we create brands that clear a preliminary trademark search and avoid pitfalls (e.g., lack of distinctiveness), has given me a perfect platform for this.”
