Ms. Anderfuren, who has over 20 years of international trademark experience, was recognized as “very experienced and creative when it comes to prosecution and strategy.” The directory also recognized Ms. Anderfuren for her ability to “get fast-growing companies to where they need to be in double-quick time.” This is the third time she has appeared in the WTR 1000, having also been recognized in 2014 and 2018.
Mr. DeCarlo, who is co-chair of Lewis Brisbois’ Intellectual Property & Technology Practice, was recognized as a recommended expert by the directory for his recent success defense in a multimillion-dollar trademark infringement action brought against client Trophy Depot. He was previously recognized in the WTR 1000 in 2018.
