The annual Asia IP Awards name the top trade mark, patent 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.
“There is a lot of high-level intellectual property work being done in Asia,” said Asia IP publisher Darren Barton. “Each year, the competition to win an Asia IP Award becomes more difficult.”
The Baldwins team was delighted to take home another Award in Auckland, and add to the growing collection of Asia IP Awards trophies that the firm has recieved since the Awards began in 2010.
