Wragge and Co’s IP team wins TMT Team of the Year award for Virgin v Zodiac

Wragge & Co’s intellectual property (IT) team has won TMT Team of the Year at The Legal Business Awards. The award was given in recognition of the team’s high-profile Supreme Court victory against Virgin Atlantic Airways. 

Not only did the team win the case on behalf of client Zodiac Seats, saving it from a £49m claim, but it also overturned the law and set a new and important legal precedent.

Judges praised Wragge & Co for securing victory ‘against the odds’ and for the firm’s ‘crucial role in overturning 100 years of patent law’.

TMT Team of the Year was one of 22 categories at the awards and required nominations to demonstrate ‘market-leading commercial or regulatory expertise’.
