Forty-six firms from 19 Asia-Pacific jurisdictions took home trophies at the ninth annual Asia IP Awards, held November 16 at the Holiday Inn New Delhi International Airport in New Delhi.


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 2018. The event also named international award winners in each of the practice areas. The complete list of winners follows this press release.


“There is a significant amount 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 and more competitive.”


Five different firms won multiple awards at the event, either in multiple practice areas or multiple jurisdictions. Global firm Baker McKenzie-affiliated firms won five awards on the evening, while Southeast Asia powerhouse Tilleke & Gibbins won four. Bird & Bird won for its global copyright work as well for its copyright work in Singapore as Bird & Bird ATMD. New Zealand’s Baldwins and Singapore-based Drew & Napier 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.”


The 2019 Asia IP Awards will be held in Taipei in November 2019.
