This year CMS sponsored the World Trademark Review (WTR) Industry Awards 2016. Egon Engin-Deniz presented the prize to Facebook, who were declared the “Software & Online Services Team of the Year.”
World Trademark Review, the world's only independent daily news and information service dedicated exclusively to reporting on trademark issues for in-house and private practitioners internationally, last night announced the winners of its 2016 Industry Awards for in-house counsel at an exclusive reception at the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek. The event, timed to coincide with the International Trademark Association’s annual meeting, was attended by 260 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. Almost 1,500 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.
