Managing IP Awards 2022: in-house submissions open


We have started accepting submissions from in-house counsel and teams for the 17th annual Managing IP Awards programme

The annual Managing IP Awards programme recognises remarkable IP achievements and developments in law firms and companies.

The programme covers several IP practice areas and more than 50 jurisdictions. 

The in-house categories recognise teams for their achievements or work in and outside their companies.


Nominate your in-house team

We have today launched the research for the in-house categories and invite in-house practitioners to participate by completing our awards form (click here to download the form).

Please upload your completed document to our in-house awards submission portal here. The submission deadline is January 27 2022.

We will use the information submitted, alongside other research data, to decide the shortlists and winners. Subject to research data, we will recognise in-house teams and practitioners in different areas of IP law or for IP in general.

You will find more details and guidelines in our research form.

If you have any questions about our in-house awards, please contact John Harrison.

About the Managing IP Awards

Managing IP launched its awards programme in 2006. The programme has evolved and grown over the years: we now host regional ceremonies, instead of a global ceremony in London, and the research covers more than seven IP practice areas and over 50 jurisdictions.

The awards ceremonies attract hundreds of guests, including in-house counsel and prominent public officials in IP. It is widely regarded as the premier IP law firm awards event in the legal industry.

The awards are based on information obtained from different sources, including submissions from law firms and companies, market feedback surveys, and publicly available information. See this year’s in-house winners for the EMEA Awards here and the Americas Awards here.
