Managing IP’s statement regarding Talal Abu-Ghazaleh

ManagingIP_logo_2000px with border.png

Managing IP has been made aware of a television interview in which Talal Abu-Ghazaleh, the founder and chairman of law firm Abu-Ghazaleh Intellectual Property, can be seen making antisemitic comments about the Holocaust. In light of the serious and abhorrent nature of this hate speech, we are taking the following actions:

  • Placing all Managing IP awards won by Abu-Ghazaleh Intellectual Property under review 

  • Removing Abu-Ghazaleh Intellectual Property’s profile and accreditation from our rankings website, 

Our rankings and awards recognise the IP achievements and capabilities of firms and practitioners. Market reputation is one of the key pillars of our evaluation process. As the published comments clearly contravene this ethos, we believe this to be a necessary and justified course of action.

Managing IP has contacted Abu-Ghazaleh Intellectual Property for an official statement. In the meantime, we would like to distance ourselves from antisemitism and hate speech in any form.
