EIP celebrated winning two awards at the prestigious Managing IP Awards last night – UK Firm of the Year for Patent Contentious and Europe Cross-border Telecoms Patent Team of the Year.
It is the third year in a row that EIP has been presented with the UK Firm of the Year - Patent Contentious award.
The Managing IP Awards recognise remarkable achievements by firms and individuals in the past 12 months. EIP was recognised for our work for client Unwired Planet in a standard essential patent and FRAND litigation case against Huawei, which went before the Supreme Court in October 2019.
Gary Moss, Head of EIP Legal who led the team, said: “These awards are recognition of the work which the EIP team has undertaken over the last few 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 two major appeals to the Court of Appeal over a period of five years. The team should feel justly proud that their hard work has been recognised in this way.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate the other firms with which we share the Cross-border award.”
EIP’s Cross-border award was shared with the other firms representing Unwired Planet in the UK and Germany, namely Osborne Clarke, df-mp and Fieldfisher.
