We are delighted to announce that our IP team has once again received the awards for International Patent Firm of the Year and Hong Kong Patent Firm of the Year at the annual 2012 Asia IP Awards ceremony held in Chiang Mai in Thailand on 26 October 2012. 

This is the third consecutive year we have won the Hong Kong patent award and the second time we have won the international patent award.
