Last night, taking a short break from the kind hospitality of others to play host ourselves, WTR celebrated the good work being carried out by in-house counsel. Following the champagne reception and presentations at the stunning Belo Mansion, we can now reveal the winners for this year’s WTR Industry Awards.
Among those honoured were teams from The Association of American Medical Colleges, GlaxoSmithKline, Grupo Televisa, Christian Louboutin, Jack Daniel’s Properties, Merck & Co, Inc and Twitter.
The lifetime achievement award was handed to Shell Oil Company’s Kimbley L Muller by last year’s winner, INTA’s Alan Drewsen. A past president of the International Trademark Association (and recipient of INTA President’s Award in 2008), Muller has also served as president of the Houston Intellectual Property Law Association and chair of the Patent, Trademark and Copyright Section of State Bar of Texas.
Apple’s Thomas La Perle picked up the award for in-house counsel of the year.
