For the past few years, the prestigious IP Excellence Awards 2018 has continued to provide recognition to those businesses and individuals who go above and beyond within the fields of patent, trademark and intellectual property.
As digitalisation is now at the forefront of every business and enterprise, the importance of intellectual property has grown in response. With clients requiring support and advice on how to safeguard intangible assets and online information vital to their survival and development in their respective business markets.
In an era of continuously evolving and expanding technology, these firms and individuals help provide assurance and safety for internet-based intellectual property and should be commended for their efforts.
