For the second year in a row, Angela Doughty is being internationally recognized for her "legal trademark expertise" by the 2018 World Trademark Review 1000 list. This list, now in its eighth year, highlights firms and individuals that are considered to be the best in this field.
"Being included in WTR1000 again this year is an honor, of course, but what is really rewarding is knowing that our clients and my peers recognize me as a trademark attorney that they can trust to provide both valuable expertise and practical strategies," Doughty said. "I am grateful for the opportunity to work with clients that allow me to be a part of their team, and I look forward to continuing to be a part of those teams as we work together to develop and build strong trademark portfolios."
The WTR conducts hundreds of interviews with lawyers and their clients to identify the leading trademark players in more than 70 jurisdictions around the world. You are only considered for WTR 1000 after receiving enough positive feedback from markets sources. To date, WTR 1000 is the only publication to recommend individual practitioners and their firms exclusively in the trademark field.
Doughty leads the firm's Intellectual Property practice and is a North Carolina State Bar Board Certified Specialist in Trademark Law. She routinely counsels and assists clients with identifying, protecting, and enforcing their U.S. and international intellectual property rights, trademark and service mark selection, clearance, and registration. Doughty also has extensive experience with strategic planning and management of intellectual property rights, including intellectual property audits to assist clients with the identification of intellectual property assets and the related risks and opportunities.
