Zurich-based Rentsch Partner provides holistic brand-related services, thanks to a model by which it handles prosecution and litigation and enforcement matters on an integrated basis. Another USP of the firm is a deep bench; it has 31 lawyers and patent attorneys, many of whom bring high-level trademark expertise to the table. Rentsch Partner is in a good groove at the moment; its filing numbers are up in terms of Swiss and international trademark applications and it has recently taken significant steps in its move towards a paperless future. The ensemble’s top brand specialist is Gregor Wild, a global IP thinker who makes light work of managing valuable worldwide trademark portfolios. The practice identifies four other partners as leading trademark experts – Maria Iskic, Matthias Städeli, Christian Hilti and Demian Stauber – all of whom also make the WTR 1000 cut.
