PROPERTY firm, Lawrie IP, has achieved gold ranking for its trademark practice and has grown its total turnover to £2.6 million from £2.2m in the last year.
The Glasgow-headquartered company is one of only two gold rated firms in Scotland this year in the World’s Leading Trademark Professionals (WTR 1000) rankings.
In addition, Lawrie IP director and Chartered Trade Mark Attorney Sharon Mackison received a gold individual ranking and Chartered Trade Mark Attorney Shirley Collins was awarded silver.
Dr Donald Lawrie launched Lawrie IP in 2010 and it has expanded steadily with a big increase in turnover of almost 200% in the last five years from £880,000 in 2014/15 to £2.6m in the year to the end of April 2020.
In the last year, Lawrie IP has taken on seven new team members.
Dr Lawrie said: “It’s a great achievement to be one of only two firms in Scotland to achieve the top ranking this year. I’m also pleased that Sharon and Shirley’s hard work and dedication has led to their individual gold and silver rankings respectively.
“I’m confident we will continue to grow successfully and we’re putting a lot of time and effort into international expansion in the coming months.”
