LONDON - Gowling WLG offices have been named the Russian “Patent Firm of the Year” and the Canadian “Trademark Firm of the Year” at the Global IP Awards held in London on 29 January. Now in their second year, the Global IP Awards recognize the world's leading Intellectual Property (IP) law firms, based on IAM's and WTR's reporting and analysis of notable IP achievements in litigation, prosecution, and transactional work over the past year.
