WTR is now inviting nominations for the next editions of the WTR 300 and WTR Industry Awards, designed to identify the world’s leading corporate trademark counsel and teams. Nominate now to ensure that the important work undertaken by in-house professionals across the globe receives the recognition it deserves.
The nominations window is open until 11 December 2018, during which time we are seeking details of the corporate counsel deemed to be the leading lights of the trademark industry, who are adding significant value to their organisations and are exemplifying the qualities that other counsel should aspire to.
In all, the nominations will be used to facilitate two projects.
First, the nominations will form the basis of the third edition of the WTR 300: The World’s Leading Corporate Trademark Professionals, which will identify the industry’s strategic leaders. The current edition, available to subscribers, shines the spotlight on the corporate counsel deemed to be best in class. Once the nominations window closes, WTR will conduct additional research, based on nominations provided by the global trademark community, before finalising the list of inductees to the third edition.
Secondly, nominations will be used as the first step towards the WTR Industry Awards 2019 shortlist. While the WTR 300 focuses specifically on individuals, for over a decade the WTR Industry Awards have recognised the leading in-house trademark teams from around the world. Once the nomination window is closed, WTR’s editorial team will undertake additional research and the shortlist will be announced in April 2019. The winners will be announced at an exclusive champagne reception the following month.
Nominations will be held in the strictest confidence and will not be disclosed to any third parties. Self-nominations and those from individuals working in the same organisation as the nominee will be accepted, but inclusion in the WTR 300: The World’s Leading Corporate Trademark Professionals will be restricted to those individuals who have received at least two nominations from outside their own organisation. Nominations must be for in-house teams and individuals – any nominations for private practice/law firm professionals will be disregarded.
