Ogier's expertise in intellectual property has been recognised with a place in the Top 10 Patent Firms Caribbean list by The Patent Lawyer magazine.

The firm also retains its place as a recommended firm in the World Trademark Review's rankings for pan-Caribbean trade marks while partner Sophie Peat, who leads Ogier's intellectual property (IP) team from its Cayman office, has been named as one of only three highly recommended individuals, the first time she has achieved this level of recognition.

Throughout the year, the Patent Lawyer carries out extensive research to highlight leading firms in the intellectual property and patent space across the Americas and the Caribbean jurisdictions. Based on the magazine's research, the selection criteria includes, cited achievements within the last year, work in niche areas and unique strengths, and client testimonials and recommendation, among others.

The WTR1000 identifies the leading professionals and firms that are deemed outstanding at obtaining, protecting, managing, enforcing and monetising trade marks. Its latest feedback says: “Clients receive an excellent service from Ogier, thanks to the team’s subject-area expertise and professional manner. They truly take the time to educate the client and the community about trademark necessities and practices.”

"Exceptional professional"

Sophie has now been individually ranked seven times by World Trademark Review, having first received the accolade of recommended individual in 2018. Industry commentators describe Sophie's approach as "efficient, responsive and clear" and note that she "gives great advice that, ultimately, gets matters resolved", while the guide itself says she "leads the practice with an unmatched level of dexterity in managing regional trademark portfolios".

It goes on to say: “Sophie’s expertise extends to handling any potential trademark dispute that might occur. This, combined with her proactive approach and clear communication, makes her an exceptional professional in the field. Under Sophie’s leadership Ogier is an elite choice for companies seeking a well-cultivated trademark service in the region.”

Sophie said: "I am pleased Ogier has been recognised as a leading firm once again for its work in the Caribbean region in the field of IP. Our clients rely on our in depth legal and practical knowledge for a smooth process and these rankings reflect the quality of our service."

Industry leader

Sophie is a member of the International Trademark Association (INTA) and MARQUES. She serves on INTA's Country Guides and Trademark Office Practices Committee (Latin America and the Caribbean), and also on the Intellectual Property Steering Group in the Cayman Islands at the invitation of the Minister for Financial Services and Commerce.
