Pirkey Barber’s Wendy Larson Announced as Winner of 2020 Client Choice Award in Texas Trademark Law

We are pleased to announce that Pirkey Barber member Wendy Larson was selected as a winner among 2020’s Client Choice Awards, Intellectual Property – Trademarks category for the United States, Texas.

Unlike other awards, nominees for the Client Choice Award are selected only by corporate counsel. Recent client comments about Larson include:

  • “She gives very practical advice and has great tactics.”
  • “Her talent is worthy of attention.”
  • “Wendy is very commercially-minded.”

This year, Client Choice Awards received over 2,500 nominations and completed extensive background information, research, and consideration to ensure the worthiness of the 2020 winners. Over 490 winners across 82 jurisdictions around the world were selected for the 2020 awards. Award winners are listed on the Client Choice website and via Lexology, and were honored at a celebratory dinner on February 6, 2020. This recognition expressly focuses on the ability to add real value to client businesses above and beyond the other players in the market.

Larson’s trademark law practice is focused on trademark litigation — specifically on issues relating to the internet, including cybersquatting and brand protection challenges involving social media platforms and smartphone applications, keyword advertising, service provider liability, and personal jurisdiction relating to foreign online actors. She practices in federal court, before the Patent and Trademark Office’s Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB), and with dispute resolution service providers such as the Forum and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) handling domain name disputes under ICANN’s domain name dispute resolution policies.
