Recognised in the 2017 edition of Asialaw Leading Lawyers
Hot on the heels of her welcome into the World Intellectual Property Review’s WIPR Leaders club as a trade mark specialist, our very own Rachel Colley has been recognised yet again.
She has been named as a leading lawyer for IP in New Zealand in the 2017 edition of Asialaw Leading Lawyers – a Euromoney publication.
The publication features the leading lawyers in 18 practice areas in 24 jurisdictions. It is the result of an extensive online survey at the end of 2016, which asked in-house counsel and private practitioners to nominate up to three lawyers who they deem to be a leading lawyer based on their work and reputation. A leading lawyer is defined as a long-established member of a practice team with a reputation for superior client service.
“In the words of Northern England, ‘I’m quietly chuffed.’ I love the work I do, helping clients maximise return on their enterprise and ingenuity.”
The recognition is fantastic, and understandably Rachel is grateful that her fellow industry colleagues have taken the time to recognise her work and achievement in IP law. “I’m honoured and humbled to receive this,” she says. “In the words of Northern England, ‘I’m quietly chuffed.’ I love the work I do, helping clients maximise return on their enterprise and ingenuity.”
The survey is one of the largest surveys of legal professionals in the Asia-Pacific region. Nominations were analysed and screened for firm, network and alliance bias, and divided into three lists according to the definition of market-leading lawyer, leading lawyer, and rising star. The list of specialists was then discussed and refined by the Asialaw research team, based on its wide knowledge of the market.
