Press release of August 30, 2010

The “WTR Industry Award” recognizes outstanding work carried out by trademark counsel, and to identify the teams and individuals that are performing their functions to the highest possible standards. Each year, on occasion of the Annual Meeting of the International Trademark Association (INTA), the “World Trademark Review” (WTR) presents the annual WTR Industry Awards at an exclusive champagne reception. This year’s ceremony was held at The Harvard Club of Boston on the evening of Tuesday May 25, 2010.

The final award presented on the night is for Alexander von Mühlendahl’s “Lifetime Achievement”, as the only award open to candidates who are not in-house counsel. This is the first time WTR has awarded an individual in private practice in the trademark field.

Alexander von Mühlendahl has also been nominated for inclusion in the trademark chapter of the International Who’s Who of Business Lawyers published by Who’s Who Legal. With his inclusion, the BARDEHLE PAGENBERG firm will be among the very few firms worldwide (in any field of the law) boasting three of its members in this elite group of practitioners, the others being Jochen Pagenberg and Peter Munzinger.
