David Hughes wins 2020 Lawyers Weekly Intellectual Property Partner of the Year

1 December 2020

We are thrilled to share the industry recognition of Practice Group Leader and Principal David Hughes at the 2020 Lawyers Weekly Awards as ‘Intellectual Property Partner of the Year’.  The Lawyers Weekly Partner of the Year Awards, in partnership with Taylor Root, showcases outstanding performance by partners, or partner equivalent, across individual practice areas within the Australian legal industry — the only national awards program to do so.

The award tops off a fantastic year of recognition and dedication to the IP profession for both David and Griffith Hack. David joined Griffith Hack’s leadership team in July as a National Practice Group Leader and was more recently recognised as a World Leading IP Strategist in IAM's Strategy 300.

In a hotly contested category against 8 other IP specialists, David proudly accepted the award during the ceremony. Recently joined Managing Director Aaron LePoidevin who attended the evening gala, said “An award like this is a reflection of both individual excellence and fantastic team support. Congratulations to David and his team for receiving this recognition. It was great to see our firm represented in such a competitive field!”.
