The 2019 Asian Legal Business IP rankings have been released and recognise JurisAsia LLC, the Singapore-based law firm exclusively associated with Gowling WLG, among the region's leading law firms.
In this year's results, JurisAsia LLC achieved a Tier 1 ranking for both Patents and Copyright/Trademarks for Singapore. The results highlight the strength of the firm's expertise and reputation for specialist IP and technology-focused work in the growing Singapore market.
Asia is increasingly becoming a major innovation hub and, alongside this trend, there is a marked growth in the filing of patents and trademarks. Already, Singapore is the biggest source of international patent filings in Southeast Asia.
JurisAsia provides high-quality, innovative and commercial advice to clients across South East Asia. Its internationally-ranked lawyers are leading experts in their field and help clients from a wide range of business sectors to secure, exploit and extract value from their IP.
The firm's success in these latest rankings adds to a number of high-profile successes for the global IP team of Gowling WLG. These include being awarded "Firm of the Year" in three categories at the 2019 Global Intellectual Property (IP) Awards and named Designs Firm of the Year (UK) and Middle East Firm to Watch at the 2019 MIP EMEA Awards.
The team also gained impressive rankings in the latest World Trademark Review edition of WTR 1000 and World Intellectual Property Review's WIPR Leaders 2019 guide.
