World Trademark Review (WTR) has recently published its annual guide, WTR 1000 2022, recognizing the top trademark professionals in key jurisdictions around the globe. This year, shareholders Erin Klug and Rebecca Wilson make their debuts on this prestigious list, joining an elite group of only 23 trademark attorneys achieving recognition in Michigan.
Erin is described as “a versatile IP attorney,” with one of her clients stating, “Whenever I have trademark, copyright, or patent work, I turn it over to her – I have total confidence in her ability and have never been disappointed. She’s not someone who couches everything in a bunch of disclaimers and conditions but gives practical and excellent advice.”
An accomplished patent, trademark, and copyright attorney, Erin counsels large corporations, innovative companies, and solo entrepreneurs regarding intellectual property opportunities and strategy. She guides clients in various industries through the application and registration processes and enforces those rights once granted. Whether Erin is working with entrepreneurs, in-house counsel, presidents and CEOs, marketing teams, or R&D departments and individual engineers, she is valued for being a smart lawyer who is an agile problem-solver and focused on realizing commercial goals.
In analyzing Becky’s stand-out skills, WTR says her “rich CV includes previous manufacturing and corporate roles, giving her a well-rounded view of the issues her IP clients face. Tenacious and commercial, she never lets anything stand in the way of robust rights protection.”
Helping clients understand how to build, protect, and enforce their brands is what Becky does best. Possessing a keen understanding of the efforts required to create a successful business, Becky devotes her practice to copyright protections and the prosecution of trademarks from inception to registration. Her clientele is diverse and includes the automotive industry, clothing designers, tequila manufacturers, small breweries, cannabis companies, skincare companies, logistics companies, start-ups, and medical device companies.
