Please note that they took a different approach in making recommendations (focusing on quality rather than quantity) as reflected in the excerpts below from their response. > > Best Regards, > Margie > ___________ > > WIPO believes in quality of information and approach. The success of the UDRP is all about substantive expert understanding. At the 10-May-2011 webinar, WIPO will make a number of observations on the envisaged process and on the UDRP more generally. > > On that basis, and for present purposes, we are pleased to submit as the WIPO Center’s UDRP panelist recommendations, David Bernstein and Tony Willoughby. Mr. Bernstein and Mr. Willoughby are among the most respected and appointed of WIPO’s 450 UDRP panelists. With hundreds of WIPO UDRP decisions between them, each has authored an extensive body of carefully reasoned UDRP jurisprudence (whereby their recorded transfer rate incidentally ranks among the most conservative). Mr. Bernstein and Mr. Willoughby have for many years been core faculty members for the annual WIPO Advanced Domain Name Workshop, and have heard there a wide range of views from counsel and filing parties (both complainants and respondents, in-house and outside). They are eminently qualified to speak on any number of UDRP topics. > > Both as an Attorney and Complainant, we would recommend Aimee Gessner, of BMW. Ms. Gessner is an Attorney-at-Law (New York, USA), and Solicitor (England and Wales), and serves as legal counsel for BMW, a brand owner that has filed numerous UDRP disputes with the WIPO Center over many years. Ms. Gessner has also served as faculty for the WIPO Advanced Domain Name Workshop, and has extensive experience with the UDRP, and of its value and operation from those perspectives, and would be well-qualified to speak with authority on the subject. > > We also understand that Paul McGrady and John Berryhill have been put forward by others as possible speakers. For the WIPO Center’s part, we can confirm that both have made numerous appearances as outside counsel in many WIPO UDRP cases, and have demonstrated experience and substantive knowledge of the UDRP. While they each will have their own vantage point, we believe both would be competent to speak on the subject from their relevant practitioner perspectives. > > > ________________________________________ Hogan Lovells (Paris) LLP is a limited liability partnership registered in England and Wales with registered number OC353350 Hogan Lovells refers to the international legal practice comprising Hogan Lovells International LLP, Hogan Lovells US LLP, Hogan Lovells Worldwide Group (a Swiss Verein), and their affiliated businesses.
