Managing IP held three dinners for its 2018 awards in London, New York and Hong Kong. Find out all the winners and view photos from the events

Managing IP had a busy March – we held three awards dinners in three consecutive weeks to reveal the best intellectual property law firms and individuals around the globe.

The EMEA Awards was held at The Savoy in London on March 8, and was the 13th time we have held an awards dinner in London. The Americas Awards were held at The Essex House in New York on March 15 and was the 11th time we have held an awards dinner in the US. Lastly, the inaugural Asia Awards was held at the JW Marriott in Hong Kong on March 21.

The shortlists for the Managing IP Awards were based on information obtained during the research for the 2018 edition of IP STARS. Read more about the IP STARS research methodology at

Following feedback from guests, this year we introduced a new ceremony and changed the coverage of some existing events. We expanded our North America ceremony to include South America and Central America, and moved the newly-named Managing IP Americas Awards to New York City. The London ceremony was changed from the Global Awards to the EMEA Awards.

The EMEA Awards included a silent auction and collection to raise money for our chosen charity Haven House Children's Hospice, which cares for life-limited children and their families. Thanks to everyone who donated to this worthy cause.

You can view all the photos from all three dinners on our Facebook page at and see more information about all our awards, including winners from previous years, at

Congratulations to all the winners!
