Our annual quest to identify the world’s best corporate trademark professionals comes to an end this week. So, if you know an outstanding trademark practitioner or team that deserves recognition, please make your nomination here before December 8 2017.
Your suggestions will form the basis for two projects. Firstly, they will help us to select industry-leading individuals for inclusion in the 2018 edition of WTR 300: The World’s Leading Corporate Trademark Professionals. The current edition, the first of its kind, identifies and profiles those in-house trademark lawyers deemed outstanding by their peers. Your nominations will ensure that the second guide is equally insightful. After the nominations deadline has passed, the World Trademark Review editorial team will do further research, based on the suggestions we receive, before confirming the list of professionals to be featured in the next edition.
You nominations will also help us to decide the shortlist for the WTR Industry Awards 2018. For more than a decade, the WTR Industry Awards have celebrated the achievements of world-class corporate trademark teams working across a range of industry sectors and regions. This year is no different, and we want to hear from you about those in-house teams who added real value to their brands over the past twelve months. The shortlist will be announced in April 2018, and the winners will be unveiled at an exclusive champagne reception at the INTA annual conference in May 2018.
If you know corporate trademark professionals – either teams or individuals – that deserve recognition for their top-notch work, please act fast and nominate them here.
All nominations are strictly confidential. Self-nominations, and nominations for individuals working in the same organisation as the nominator will be accepted, but inclusion in the WTR 300: The World’s Leading Corporate Trademark Professionals will be reserved for those individuals who have received at two or more nominations from outside their own organisation. Nominations for private practice professionals will not be accepted.
