Who are the innovators of the trademark industry? Nominate and have your say

WTR is seeking to identify and recognise the innovators in the trademark industry as part of a new project. For that reason, we are currently looking for nominations for the individuals or initiatives that are shaping the future of trademark and brand protection work – and it will only take a couple of minutes to do so.

As part of the WTR Innovators project, we are seeking to highlight individuals and initiatives that, over the past 12-18 months, have helped trademark practitioners work better and more productively, especially through the use of:

  • new technology;
  • new brand protection tools and software;
  • revamped websites and/or web platforms;
  • innovative sustainability initiatives;
  • innovative diversity initiatives;
  • innovative awareness programmes;
  • other innovation-led programmes;
  • new approaches to workflows.

These individuals could be working at law firms, within corporate brand protection departments, at national IP offices, at IP associations, at service providers, at online marketplaces, or elsewhere. The aim is to find the individuals and initiatives that have been helping to improve the trademark industry through innovation over the past 12-18 months. If you do not know a specific individual behind an innovative initiative, just let us know the organisation/company/firm and we will endeavour to recognise the figures behind it.

Making a nomination should take less than 2 minutes. To do so, add them to this survey form (below) or email WTR special projects editor Tim Lince (including your nominee and/or initiative and a reason for their nomination). All data from the nominations will only be used for this project, and your reasoning may be used in editorial.
