Niche media law firm, Wiggin, is pleased to announce the appointment of trade mark attorney, Grazyna Poplawska, to the Brands group. Grazyna joins from intellectual property firm, Stevens Hewlett & Perkins, in Bristol.
Grazyna is a UK and European trade mark attorney with more than seven years’ experience. She advises on all aspects of brand management and protection and has experience of working on global brand protection issues for household names, as well as managing international brand portfolios. She is engaged in all aspects of contentious and non-contentious trade mark work ranging from clearance searches, filing strategy, and the filing and prosecution of trade mark applications, to oppositions, cancellations and invalidations.
Wiggin’s in-house trade mark team is led by Gurminder Panesar.
Gurminder comments: “Brand equity is a key asset in today’s digital economy and as such we are finding that it is of great importance to our clients who operate in an increasingly fragmented marketplace. For this reason, we are particularly pleased to welcome Grazyna on board. She brings some excellent experience with her and we are keen to capitalise on her arrival to continue to drive the trade mark practice forward.
“She has a broad range of experience on trade mark registration matters and will work alongside the existing team to target new opportunities at a time when the level of activity with existing clients continues to increase.”
Grazyna also has experience of advising on global brand protection issues for household names in the sportswear, publishing, fashion and cosmetics, travel, foodstuffs and electrical equipment industries.
