EIP celebrates two wins at Managing IP EMEA Awards 2021

EIP is delighted to have won two awards at the prestigious Managing IP Awards – UK Firm of the Year for Patent Contentious and Impact Case of the Year.

The Managing IP Awards recognise remarkable achievement by firms and individuals in the past 12 months.

It is the fourth year in a row that EIP has presented with the UK Firm of the Year - Patent Contentious award. Following EIP's win at the Supreme Court for Unwired Planet and Conversant Wireless against Huawei and ZTE Managing IP has also awarded EIP Impact Case of the Year. The decision which was handed down in August 2020 carried significant implications worldwide for licensing of intellectual property in the area of telecoms.

Gary Moss, Head of EIP's Litigation team said: "These awards are recognition of the hard work which the EIP team has undertaken over the past seven years on this landmark and ground breaking litigation, which has been acknowledged throughout the world as one of the leading cases in the area of FRAND and SEPs. The Supreme Court case was the culmination of no fewer than four major trials at first instance and three major appeals to the Court of Appeal over a period of five years. EIP's team should feel justly proud that their hard work has been recognised in this way."
