Ms. Rosette, of counsel, was recognized as one of five leading generic top-level domain (gTLD) experts in the nation, and was the only woman so recognized. Noting her expertise, World Trademark Review wrote that she is "one of the most celebrated names in the emerging gTLD space," and that "very few can hold a candle to her ability and knowledge." The publication also listed her as a top trademark prosecution and strategy expert in Washington.

Ms. Hamilton, special counsel and vice-chair of the firm's intellectual property rights group, was recognized as one of the recommended trademark enforcement and litigation experts in Washington, D.C. In a profile, World Trademark Review wrote that Ms. Hamilton is "renowned for her litigation accomplishments and boasts a substantial record on both TTAB and federal court disputes." Ms. Hamilton was one of only eight women among the top 40 enforcement and litigation attorneys recognized in the D.C. Metro region rankings.

Covington also received acclaim in the law firm categories of enforcement and litigation, as well as prosecution and strategy. The publication cites the firm's growth and reputation in the trademark space as reasons for its success.

The World Trademark Review 1000 identifies leading trademark law firms and individuals in over 70 global jurisdictions.

Covington & Burling LLP, an international law firm, provides corporate, litigation, and regulatory expertise to enable clients to achieve their goals.  Founded in 1919, the firm has more than 800 lawyers and offices in Beijing, Brussels, London, New York, San Diego, San Francisco, Seoul, Shanghai, Silicon Valley, and Washington, DC.
