DLA Piper’s intellectual property and technology team has been named as Global Firm of the Year at the Managing Intellectual Property (‘Managing IP’) Awards, and Best Law Firm in IP, IT and TMT at the Belgian Trends Legal Awards.
The Managing IP Awards, held on 19 March at the Dorchester Hotel in London, aimed to recognise outstanding IP work over the last 12 months, with winners being chosen by Managing IP’s team of editors and researchers, based on research for the world IP survey, a review of market developments and client feedback.
DLA Piper was shortlisted in four categories: China IP Transactional Work (Foreign Law Firm) of the Year; Europe Patent Firm of the Year; European Copyright Firm of the Year; and Global Firm of the Year.
The accolade from the Trends Legal Awards was received by DLA Piper on 18 March and celebrated the IP and technology practice as being a market leader in technology matters. The jury praised DLA Piper for its extensive experience and multidisciplinary expertise and global approach.
