Each year World Trademark Review honours leading in-house departments and groups through its Industry Awards. The awards are designed to recognise the vitally important work carried out by in-house trademark counsel, and to identify those teams and individuals that are performing their functions to the highest possible standards. The awards are divided into geographical, industry and individual categories, and winners are selected from nominations received from the global trademark community.

awardThe WTR Industry Awards trophies are handcrafted in acrylic and stainless steel by award-winning British artist Sian Matthews.
