Australia: Shelston IP wins international acclaim as “Australian IP firm of the year”
Last Updated: 19 April 2013

Each year, the publishers of "Managing Intellectual Property" (MIP) magazine present a series of Global Awards, to the very best IP firms from around the world. These awards are regarded by many as the most prestigious in our highly specialised industry.

Having initially been nominated in a competitive short list of leading firms, we are delighted to announce that Shelston IP has won the coveted award for the Australian "IP Firm of the Year", in the "prosecution" category. This is one of only two awards given across all firms and all categories throughout Australia. The major "prosecution" category spans the core of our IP practice, encompassing patents, trademarks and designs.

The winner was announced and the award presented at a formal Global Awards Dinner, held in an "IP Oscars" style format at the Dorchester Hotel in London, on 17 April 2013. Our Executive Chairman, Stuart Smith, was in attendance at the event and was pleased to be able to accept the prestigious trophy in person.

The award recognises outstanding professional expertise, service quality, reputation and profile based on objective analysis of market data and direct feedback from a wide range of independent sources including our clients, other users of the IP system and other Australian IP firms.

While we are obviously eager to share the good news, we are equally keen to gratefully acknowledge and sincerely thank our clients for the confidence, loyalty and trust that they demonstrate with each new engagement or referral. We are acutely aware that our success depends entirely upon theirs, and this keeps us striving for continual improvement.
