We are thrilled to announce that AJ Park has been named New Zealand trade mark firm of the year at the Asia IP Awards 2019. The winners were announced at a gala event held on 8 November at the Shangri-La’s Far Eastern Plaza Hotel in Taipei. AJ Park principal Corinne Cole accepted the award on behalf of the firm.
The Asia IP Awards named top trade marks, patents and copyright practices, as determined by in-house counsel from Asia, Europe and the Americas. More than 5,000 in-house counsel were polled by Asia IP 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 anAsia 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.’
