Seed IP Law Group recently co-sponsored the World Trademark Review (WTR) Industry Awards, which took place during the International Trademark Association’s 140th Annual Meeting in Seattle, WA. Seed IP sponsored the Financial & Professional Services Team of the Year, which was awarded to Visa at this year’s ceremony.
World Trademark Review announced the winners of its 2018 Industry Awards for in-house counsel at an exclusive reception at the Seattle Art Museum on May 22. The event, timed to coincide with the INTA Annual Meeting, was attended by over 300 senior in-house counsel from nominated companies and representatives from a number of prominent law firms.
To arrive at the shortlist, World Trademark Review conducted in-depth research of in-house counsel worldwide by surveying the global trademark community. Hundreds of nominations make the awards unique in clearly identifying those counsel – both teams and individuals– that have excelled in their sector or region. The nomination process was followed by a two-month research process, conducted by the World Trademark Review editorial team.
Trevor Little, editor of World Trademark Review, said: “Trademark counsel are the unsung heroes of their organisations, undertaking vital work on behalf of the brands they protect. It is therefore only right that they are recognised for these endeavours, both internally and within the wider industry. This year’s shortlisted teams and individuals represent the best in class, and deserve special recognition for their exceptional achievements.”
Seed IP proudly congratulates Visa on receiving the 2018 WTR Industry Award for Financial & Professional Services Team of the Year.
