Alexandra Brodie and Shelagh Carnegie have been named leading intellectual property (IP) practitioners in Managing Intellectual Property's (MIP) "Top 250 Women in IP" list for 2019.
The Top 250 Women in IP list, which was launched in 2013, distinguishes female IP practitioners in private practice who have performed exceptionally for their clients and firms in the past year.
Alexandra Brodie, a UK-based partner and co-chair of Gowling WLG's global Tech Group, and Shelagh Carnegie, a partner and leader of the Canadian Trademarks Group, were also named "IP Stars" in their respective jurisdictions.
This year alone, Gowling WLG has already received multiple accolades from MIP. In March, the firm's IP teams in the UK and UAE took home top honours in the "Designs Firm of the Year" and "Middle East Firm to Watch" categories at the MIP EMEA 2019 Awards. Gowling WLG was also named Canadian "Firm of the Year" in both the Trademark Contentious and Trademark Prosecution categories, and won the "Impact Case of the Year" award, at the MIP Americas 2019 Awards.
Gowling WLG's global IP team works closely with IP owners to maximize and protect their intangible assets in several key markets, including in some of the world's most challenging jurisdictions. With leading IP practices in Canada, the UK and Europe, Russia, the UAE, Singapore and China, and a network of trusted agents worldwide, the firm helps IP owners optimize new opportunities and overcome complex obstacles - wherever business takes them.
