Rising stars scoop prizes

16th Dec 2019

Three rising stars of the trade mark legal profession were presented with awards at our Christmas Lunch in London on 13th December 2019.

In front of some 600 guests at the London Hilton on Park Lane, our Chief Executive Keven Bader announced this year’s winners.

The awards are presented annually to high achieving students on the trade mark attorney qualification courses at Queen Mary University of London, Bournemouth University and Nottingham Law School.

Alexandra Nott picked up an award for the second year running after winning the Queen Mary University of London award last year.

The Roy Scott Award was also presented for the first time following its renaming in tribute to CITMA Paralegal Roy Scott who passed away earlier this year. The inaugural recipient was Dan Hardman-Smart.
