44 Firms Take Home Trophies at Asia IP Awards

Issued: November 06 2017

AUCKLAND–Forty-four firms from 19 Asia-Pacific jurisdictions took home trophies at the eighth annual Asia IP Awards, held November 3 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Auckland.


The awards named top trademarks, patents and copyright practices as determined by in-house counsel from Asia, Europe and the Americas. More than 5,000 in-house counsel were polled by Asia IP magazine throughout the first part of 2017. The event also named international award winners in each of the practice areas.


“There is a lot of high-level intellectual property work being done in Asia,” said Asia IPpublisher Darren Barton. “Each year, the competition to win an Asia IP Award becomes more difficult.”


Seven different firms won multiple awards at the event, either in multiple practice areas or multiple jurisdictions. Baker McKenzie affiliated firms won six awards on the evening, while Bird & Bird, Lee and Li, Tilleke & Gibbins, Spruson & Ferguson, Julius & Creasy and Nakamura & Partners all won two awards each.


“In-house counsel are turning to Asia- and Pacific-based law firms because they know that those firms are consistently doing high-quality work,” said Asia IP managing editor Gregory Glass. “We’re excited to be watching law firms doing such good work.”


Asia IP is a vital source of intelligence for IP-owning companies active in Asia, and international law firms which want to keep ahead of the key issues. The magazine includes a range of in-depth features, news and analysis designed to meet the information needs of in-house counsel, senior business leaders and partners at Asian and international law firms.


The 2018 Asia IP Awards will be held in Delhi in November 2018. Asia IP will also launch a brand-new set of awards for domestic law firms in China and India in 2018.


A list of the winners follows. Complete coverage, with photos of the winners and events, will be published in the December 2017/January 2018 issue of Asia IP.
