We’re excited to announce FB Rice was named the Australian "Patent Attorney Firm of the Year” at the inaugural Global IP Awards, held at the Plaisterers’ Hall in London on 29 January, 2019.
It is fantastic to see IAM Patent 1000 and World Trademark Review (WTR) 1000, both highly regarded resources, have now entered the awards space in holding their first ever awards ceremony. The awards recognise the top IP firms from around the world and it is an honour to be the recipient of such an award in its first year.
“Although we were unable to make it to the ceremony, we are beyond delighted to be awarded the inaugural Australian ‘Patent Attorney Firm of the Year’, by IAM Patent 1000 at the recent Global IP Awards. As the recipient of this award it indicates to me that the wonderful service that our team provided to our clients throughout 2018 has not gone unnoticed. It has been a big year of change in the Australian IP landscape, one where everyone has worked hard to meet our client’s requirements. A big focus remains and will continue to be providing unmatched client service, in the hope that we retain and build on our existing client base amongst the ever-changing environment. Thank you to IAM’s dedicated researchers, the Global IP Awards organisers and of course to the team at FB Rice for helping us achieve this result.”
- Brett Lunn, Managing Partner.
The Global IP Awards were developed by the IP Media Group, which publishes IAM and WTR, the world’s leading intellectual property intelligence, analysis and data platforms. The recent awards recognise outstanding achievements in IP litigation, prosecution and transactional work during 2018. See here for further commentary on the awards.
IAM and WTR have unrivalled depth of knowledge and insight into the IP advice that law and attorney firms provide to their clients in every corner of the globe. This not only allows them to produce the IAM Patent 1000 and the WTR Trademark 1000 guides to top IP firms and practitioners, but also to identify the firms in those guides that achieved remarkable success throughout 2018.
