And The Nominees Are…

Issued: October 15 2018

Law firms across Asia Pacific are stepping up their game in a race to the top, whether by expansion, merger or good old-fashioned poaching, all of which makes it increasingly challenging for the rest of us to stay on top of the practice. On November 16, 2018, Asia IP will reveal the top copyright, patent and trademark law practices across the region at an awards ceremony at the Holiday Inn New Delhi International Airport.


The five shortlisted firms in each category were based on key cases and other information provided by law firms in the region. More than 5,000 in-house counsel from Asia, Europe and the Americas – the very people who frequently work with the firms and know them best – were then polled by Asia IP magazine throughout the first part of 2018. The firm receiving the most votes in each category will be named the winners in each of 19 jurisdictions, plus in an international category.


The results will be revealed at our gala dinner next month, and in the December issue of Asia IP.
