BNU was distinguished once again as one of the leading intellectual property law firms in the Philippines.
Since 1999, Chambers & Partners of London (Chambers) has been conducting research that aims to identify the leading law firms around the world. Through surveys and interviews, Chambers compiles a list of the most distinguished lawyers and law firms with best performances.
Chambers has distinguished BNU once again as one of the top intellectual property rights law firms in the country for 2012. BNU was ranked first in Band Three category with other local law firms. Atty. Ferdinand Negre and Atty. Anthony Bengzon were also recognized as one of the top lawyers in intellectual property law.
Chambers noted BNU to be “an impressive boutique firm that remains an important player in the market.” This recognition is a fulfillment of BNU’s goal to be one of the top intellectual property law firms in the country. Being recognized by Chambers reflects BNU’s services in IP enforcement, litigation, as well as patent and trademark practice.
Here is the BNU Profile found on Chambers website (www.chambersandpartners.com) and in Chambers Asia Pacific 2012, A Client’s Guide:
