News Releases

National law firm Husch Blackwell is pleased to announce that Timothy Capria, Alan Nemes, and Caroline Chicoine have been ranked in the 2024 edition of WTR 1000: The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals in Missouri and Kansas, and Tennessee.

“Committed to its clients, Husch Blackwell is an innovative and forward-thinking practice that focuses on deepening its expertise across every industry, in order to provide the highest quality services,” WTR noted in its editorial for the WTR 1000 Missouri and Kansas rankings.

“Admired for his out-of-the-box approach to trademark law and ability to spot uncommon trademarks, Alan Nemes is described by a peer as ‘a fabulous mentor; he will stop what he is doing to answer questions and help where he can,’” WTR continued. “Alongside Nemes in St. Louis, Caroline Chicoine places her focus on online infringements and enforcements, drawing on her nearly three decades of experience to advise her patrons on registration and protection of their trademarks.”

In its editorial for the WTR 1000 Tennessee rankings, WTR noted, “Making its debut in Tennessee this year, Husch Blackwell has significantly strengthened its enforcement and brand management offering with the recent addition of Timothy Capria.”

“Tim provides invaluable guidance and counsel on trademark matters. He has an outstanding ability to navigate the finer details of IP law without losing sight of our business needs. Tim has an intimate knowledge of trademark law. He is intuitive and thoughtful in his approach. Tim is transparent with costs and timing, giving a careful plan with specified dates.” Another interviewee adds: “Tim has been instrumental in providing protection of our key assets, and we love working with him for all of our IP projects.”

Now in its 14th year, the WTR 1000 shines a spotlight on the firms and individuals that are deemed outstanding in this critical area of practice. Individual practitioners, law firms, and trademark attorney practices qualify for inclusion in the WTR 1000 solely on receiving sufficient positive feedback from market sources. The extensive research process was conducted over a four-month period by a team of full-time analysts and involved face-to-face and telephone interviews with trademark specialists across the globe.
