Managing Intellectual Property (MIP) has released its annual IP guide and once again Gowlings’ intellectual property practice received a prominent position for its Canadian and Russian offices.

The guide, which ranks the world’s leading trade-mark firms, underpins Gowlings’ place as one of the leading intellectual property firms in Canada. This is the 16th year that MIP has published its international IP survey and each year Gowlings ranks as a top-tier Canadian IP firm.

Managing IP’s survey is based on extensive research and interviews with both law firms and clients worldwide in several jurisdictions. Based on this research, firms are ranked in tiers in each category in each jurisdiction. The tiers reflect the perception of the leading firms in each market with the top-tier listing those firms regarded as having the strongest practices in each category.

The 2012 Canadian rankings are as follows:

Tier 1 – Trade mark Contentious

Tier 1 – Trade mark Prosecution

Tier 1 – Copyright

Tier 1 – Patent Contentious

Tier 1 – Patent Prosecution

The Russian office was also ranked in Patent Prosecution, Trademark/Copyright Contentious and Trademark Prosecution as well as scoring a top ranking in Patent Contentious. These rankings are an improvement on last year’s, where Gowlings received rankings in two Russian categories, and are an indication of the office’s expanding intellectual property practice.

Managing Intellectual Property also acknowledged the merits of Gowlings IP practice at a gala dinner where the firm received the following honours:

Firm of the Year: Patent Prosecution,

Firm of the Year: Trade mark Prosecution

Firm of the Year: Trade mark Contentious.

Case of the Year: Trade mark

Gowlings was also nominated for “Firm of the Year” in Patent Contentious and Copyright, and Ottawa partner Arthur Renaud was recognized for his efforts with a nomination for “Outstanding IP Practitioner of the Year.”
