The 18th Managing IP (MIP) Europe, Middle East and Africa Awards (EMEA) Awards ceremony dinner, attended by over 650 prominent IP professionals, was held in the Hilton London Metropole on 21st June and 5 members of the ZBM team were there to await the results of our nominations from last month. We were elated to find out that we have yet again been awarded the esteemed title of Spanish Patent Prosecution Firm of the Year for the sixth time, and consecutively for the last 3 years. This award recognizes the exceptional achievements made by ZBM in filing and prosecuting patent applications before different patent offices, including the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office and the European Patent Office.

Also in this year’s ceremony Montserrat Jané was unveiled as Spanish Practitioner of the Year (Patent & Trademark Attorney Firms), an important acknowledgement that very few achieve and which highlights her remarkable and innovative work, especially in opposition and appeal cases before the EPO. Montserrat was also included in the MIP prestigious list of Top 250 Women in IP last month and an IP Star of 2023.

MIP allocates these prestigious awards according to results from an extensive survey carried out each year in which IP firms submit information on their evolution and case highlights and MIP obtains feedback on the firms by interviewing important clients and peers.

As well as being an immense honour to be invited to this year’s ceremony, we are especially pleased to have been handed these awards since they are an obvious sign of our clients’ satisfaction and appreciation of our teams dedicated work. Congratulations are in order for our team and all the other MIP winners too.
