Venable LLP is pleased to announce that Andrew D. Price, a partner and a co-chair of the firm's Trademark Prosecution and Brand Management Group, has been recognized by World Trademark Review (WTR) as a "Global Leader" for 2024, marking the sixth consecutive year Mr. Price has received the accolade.

WTR Global Leaders brings together the world’s foremost law firm and corporate trademark experts, allowing the wider community to benefit from their insight, experience and perspectives.

WTR touts Mr. Price as "a pre-eminent trademark practitioner with superior research skills as well as excellent analytical skills. He can process large volumes of information quickly, has an exceptionally strong eye for detail and a good vision of the issue to recommend an effective strategy." In the past, WTR has also hailed Mr. Price 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.

Mr. Price partially credits his career success to being valued first and foremost as a creative advisor who breaks the mold of traditional trademark practice. Commenting to WTR he said, "I also challenged industry expectations by creating Venable's Wellbrand® naming solutions service, and I developed a network of foreign associates who matched my style—hard-working, creative individuals who were themselves breaking the mold and becoming more accomplished. Finally, I have been lucky enough to work with some incredible team members and colleagues throughout my career and they have contributed to my success."

An attorney at Venable for more than 25 years, Mr. Price focuses his practice on brand strategy, as well as clearing, registering, licensing, enforcing, and defending all types of trademarks, including brand names, logos, slogans, and trade dress. He manages large portfolios of trademarks, exploits IP opportunities, and controls crisis situations for clients of all sizes—from startups and celebrities to nonprofits and multinational corporations. Mr. Price is a creator of Venable's Wellbrand naming solutions service, which is an innovative naming solution that accelerates the process of developing brand names that avoid trademark pitfalls. In addition, Mr. Price oversees a personal network of top foreign lawyers overseas in a full range of trademark work, and he has significant experience in China.
