The Managing IP Global Awards, held in London in March, rewarded law firms around the world for a strong year in intellectual property work.
Olivares & Cía. was awarded the trophy for “Mexican Firm of the Year” in the Copyright category. Olivares & Cía. gave pro bono advice to two Emmy Award-winning film producers who helped to expose judicial corruption in Mexico. Their documentary, Presunto Culpable, was nearly pulled from shelves due to an infringement action but this firm overturned an injunction and the film eventually outsold The King’s Speech.
More than 200 people attended the dinner in London. Managing IP’s awards for the United States and Canada were presented at a ceremony in Washington DC later in the month.
