Managing IP North America Awards 2012 – shortlists revealed

Free access: The nominations for Managing IP’s North America Awards 2012 have been announced

The winners will be recognised at a ceremony at The Four Seasons Georgetown Hotel in Washington DC on March 27.

For the first time this year an award will be presented to the IP Thought Leader of the year. Awards will also be made to three individuals in recognition of achievements during their career, and to the cases of the year in Canada and the US.

For more information on the awards, and how to book a table, email Managing IP’s Tom St. Denis, Alissa Rozen or your usual Managing IP contact.

The shortlists are compiled by a team of researchers in New York based on information obtained over the past five months.

Managing IP’s Global Awards, covering Europe, Latin America and Asia, will be held on March 15 in London. Shortlists were announced last week.
