Abu-Ghazaleh Intellectual Property Named Firm of the Year for Middle East & North Africa


Abu-Ghazaleh Intellectual Property (AGIP) was presented with the award for Firm of the Year for the Middle East & North Africa for 12 years at the Managing IP Awards 2021. The Awards were presented in a virtual ceremony on March 30, 2021.

The firm, headquartered in Amman, Jordan, was recognized for its work throughout the region in helping IP rights owners tackle infringements, as well as for its innovative use of technology.

AGIP was commended for launching a trademark record system linked with Algerian Customs to help brand owners stop the importation of infringing goods.

During the past year, AGIP represented a well-known Swiss multinational biopharmaceutical company and a major South Korean pharmaceutical company in challenging a patent decision of the Saudi Patent Office. It also assisted several global food and drink brand owners, with trademark protection in Egypt.

AGIP was also named firm of the year in the Middle East & North Africa category at the Managing IP Awards in 2018 and 2019.

Managing IP editor Ed Conlon said: “Since 2006, the Managing IP Awards have been a major event in the IP calendar. This year, they are being presented virtually for the first time due to the pandemic. We send our congratulations to all the winners and look forward to gathering again in person next year.”
He added: “This award recognizes AGIP’s CSR initiatives and outstanding efforts towards the development and protection of IP in the Middle East and North Africa.”

About the Managing IP Awards

The Managing IP Awards programme is the most comprehensive and widely respected IP awards event in the world. Now in its 16th year, the programme covers a wide range of IP practice areas and more than 30 jurisdictions. Read about the practice areas at ipstars.com.

Each year our research analysts obtain information from thousands of firms, IP practitioners and their clients through interviews, email and online surveys.

Before compiling the shortlists, our researchers evaluated the work data supplied by firms and, where applicable, reviewed publicly available information such as court and IP office records. They focused on work done or concluded in the previous year, particularly looking for case studies that were of great significance to clients and/or IP law and practice. Firms or individuals can also be shortlisted based on the researcher's independent research findings.

Managing IP launched its awards programme in 2006. The ceremony attracts hundreds of guests from private practice and in-house as well as prominent figures in the IP industry. It is regarded as the premier IP law firm awards event in the legal industry. In total, more than 1,000 guests attended the ceremonies in 2019 and 2020.
