Managing IP Awards 2023: in-house submissions

Managing IP trophies

We are accepting submissions from in-house counsel and teams for the 18th annual Managing IP Awards programme

We have started the research for the 2023 edition of Managing IP Awards programme. Launched in 2006, this industry-leading IP awards programme recognises remarkable achievements in law firms and companies.

The Coca-Cola Company, Nokia and Sony were among the companies that won in-house team awards at the 2022 ceremonies, which were attended by more than 600 guests. Read about the three ceremonies: Americas Awards, Asia-Pacific Awards and EMEA Awards.

Nominate your in-house team

We are inviting in-house leaders and their teams to participate in the research by completing and submitting our awards form. Please click here to read the guidelines and download the in-house awards form here.

We will use the information submitted, alongside other research data, to decide the shortlist 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. Learn more about our 2023 research here.

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

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 three 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 are based on information obtained from different sources, including submissions from law firms and companies, market feedback surveys, and publicly available information. The in-house categories recognise individuals and teams for their work in and outside their companies.

The 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.
