The World Trademark Review (WTR) is the world's only independent international magazine dedicated exclusively to trademark law and practice. The WTR's 2013 Industry Awards was timed to coincide with the International Trademark Association’s annual meeting and was attended by more than 200 senior in-house counsel from nominated companies and representatives from a number of prominent law firms.
To arrive at the shortlist, WTR conducted in-depth research of in-house counsel worldwide by surveying the global trademark community. Almost 1,500 nominations make the awards unique in clearly identifying those counsel, both teams and individuals, that have excelled in their sector or region. The nomination process was followed by a two-month research process, conducted by the WTR editorial team.
Trevor Little, editor of WTR, said: "Over the past year trademark counsel have continued to grapple with a multitude of brand threats, their efforts complicated by the ever-evolving nature of the challenges they face. Examining the nominations for this year’s WTR Industry Awards, it was clear that all the shortlisted teams and individuals had successfully met these challenges head-on, going above and beyond the call of duty to provide protection and value to their organisations. Judging the awards was therefore a very difficult process and the winners really do represent best practice in the trademark industry, and deserve special recognition for their exceptional achievements.”
