Bird & Bird scoops two major IP awards in Asia


Bird & Bird proudly secured the title of 'International Patent Firm of the Year' and 'Singapore Patent Firm of the Year' at this year's 2014 Asia IP Awards.

The award ceremony named top patents, trademarks 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 2014.

“The competition among top intellectual property practices in Asia is fierce,” said Asia IP publisher Darren Barton. “That we are able to recognize so many different practices is a tribute to the breadth and depth of the IP practices in the region.”

“In-house counsel speak highly of the innovative work done by intellectual property practices in Asia and the Pacific,” said Asia IP managing editor Gregory Glass. “There is an incredible amount of high-quality IP work being done here, and we’re pleased to be able honour the region’s best practices.”
