Luxury Law Awards 2023

March 2023

Event date: 13th June 2023

HGF is sponsoring the ‘IP Counsel of the Year’ award at the Luxury Law Awards on the 13th June in London.

The Luxury Law Awards recognise the skills needed to guide luxury businesses and their brands to profitable success. They offer a unique opportunity for in-house lawyers and their advisers to gain recognition for their specialist skills and expertise in this dynamic sector. Organised in conjunction with Luxury Law Summit London, the awards will be presented at the conference, which is being held at London’s British Museum on 13 June. The judging panel is made up of leading luxury GCs as well as executives, analysts, and commentators.

The ‘IP Counsel of the Year’ category sets out to identify an IP lawyer who can demonstrate having made an outstanding contribution to the management of their company’s IP assets and protection of the brand. The submission should focus on a single matter or project that exemplifies the individual’s contribution to the business. The judges will be looking for evidence of legal expertise, team working, initiative and leadership.

HGF Partner Lee Curtis and Trade Mark Director’s Lauren Somers and Claire Jones will be attending the event.
