Top legal industry analysts recognise Appleyard Lees as a leading intellectual property firm

Appleyard Lees IP LLP has recently announced it has been recognised by three top legal industry analysts in the past month.

Eminent legal publishers Chambers & Partners 2021 has named Appleyard Lees a leading intellectual property firm for another consecutive year. Also, several Appleyard Lees attorneys are listed in IP Stars 2021, while The Legal 500 2021 has named Appleyard Lees a leading law firm for its patent and trade mark prosecution work.

In all three programmes, client feedback plays a large part in the research undertaken to rate a firm or attorney.

Appleyard Lees Managing Partner Dick Waddington said of these accolades, “In what is an era of uncertainty, we are very happy that some things remain consistent – including the very positive recognition we continue to receive from our clients and legal industry analysts.”

He continued, “We have worked extremely hard in what has been a challenging year, so to receive not one but three recognitions over the past month is an honour for us.”
