September 2017

The UK Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys have announced the top filers of UK and EU trade mark applications in 2016 in the latest CITMA Review. HGF, one of Europe's leading IP firms, is listed 2nd in the top 100 trade mark filers for both EU & UK filings. 

This follows a period of significant growth over the last 12 months and expansion for the whole firm with the opening of the 3rd European office in Amsterdam, alongside The Hague (opened September 2015) and Basel (opened February 2016). The trade mark team continues to grow from strength to strength attracting some of the best talent in Europe with impressive new recruits Alexander Hagen, Kasper Radstake and Pieter de Ruijter in Amsterdam and Jonathan Thurgood into our London Office in 2016, along with internal growth with the promotion of Richard Wylie to Partner. The team has a wealth of experience and expertise working with an enviable client list worldwide covering multiple industries from retail to healthcare.

Alexander Hagen, HGF Partner comments "It has been an exciting time to join the firm. HGF have made significant growth over the past few years and have ambitious plans for the future which I look forward to supporting through our expertise in trade marks, which further strengthens the firm's European offering."

David Potter, Head of the Trade Marks group comments "It's been a busy year for the trade mark team with several significant new client wins alongside the continued expansion of our team in Europe and the UK. It is great to see the figures support the hard work and success of our specialist team, which continues to increase the firm’s client base year on year."
