SIPS has won the China International Copyright Firm of the Year award at the 10th annual Asia IP Awards, held on November 8 at the Shangri-La’s Far Eastern Plaza Hotel in Taipei. SIPS was also shortlisted for the China International Trademark Firm of the Year award.
This year saw the launch of the China International Awards, honouring international law firms for their work in China. The awards are 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 2019.
“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.”
“The days of using a far-off law firm to do your work in Asia are mostly in the past,” said Asia IP managing editor Gregory Glass. “In-house counsel increasingly turn to Asia- and Pacific-based law firms because they know that those firms are consistently doing high-quality work.”
