Debevoise & Plimpton LLP received several top-tier (“gold”) rankings in the World Trademark Review 1000 for 2015. The firm was ranked in the top tier overall in the United States and in New York in the “Enforcement and Litigation” category. In addition, partners David H. Bernstein and Bruce P. Keller were ranked in the top tier both nationally and in New York for “Enforcement and Litigation.” Partner Jeremy Feigelson was also newly ranked in New York for “Enforcement and Litigation.”

World Trademark Review 1000 noted Debevoise’s “unrivalled ‘depth of experience’” and said that the firm’s “persuasive dispute resolution skills in particular have caught the eye of scores of marquee brands.” The publication described Mr. Bernstein as “super-smart, super-organised and really hardworking” and acknowledged his reputation as “a treat to face in court.” Mr. Bernstein’s work for Kate Spade and Yves Saint Laurent was noted as “the talk of the town” and the “tenacious litigator” was praised as “indisputably one of the top trademark lawyers in the country.” Mr. Keller is “a stand-out presence in the courtroom…one of the ‘most high-profile guys’ around, arguably unmatched.” The World Trademark Review 1000 also lauded Mr. Feigelson’s work for brands in the internet and emerging technologies space.
