A Year of Successes and Continuous Achievements for AGIP

30 Dec 2011

Abu-Ghazaleh Intellectual Property (AGIP) has been recognized as a pioneering firm in the field of Intellectual Property worldwide.

Over the past years, AGIP developed its services and contributed to the efficient IP system that has brought significant changes to the Arab region.

In 2011 and similar to previous years, a series of successes and achievements were added to AGIP's record.

During 2011, AGIP continued to offer its best-quality service through its offices regardless of the unrests that took place in parts of the Arab region.

As the region's leading firm in Intellectual Property, AGIP has received the Managing Intellectual Property (MIP) Award for being the top IP firm in the Middle East in 2011 for the fifth consecutive year. AGIP has been also selected among the world’s leading private practice trademark practitioner that provides its professional services to local and international clients efficiently.

AGIP therefore was keen to be present in the international conferences, forums and seminars related to Intellectual Property:
- International Trademark Association (INTA) meetings: The INTA 133rd annual meeting, the INTA Leadership Meeting 2011 and the INTA Board of Directors Meetings.
- Licensing Executives Society-USA meetings
- Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys (ITMA) spring conference
- The Pharmaceutical Trade Marks Group (PTMG) meeting

Another recognition of its considerable role in safeguarding Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) was presented by Dubai Customs which honored AGIP for being the biggest Intellectual Property firm in registering and recording trademarks with Dubai Customs.

Our commitment to offering a comprehensive range of IP services with the most competitive IP charges is demonstrated by reducing charges of domain names services in the United Arab Emirates where AGIP is an accredited registrar for .ae domain names.

To cope with the latest technologies in the ICT domain, AGIP has chosen to connect people around the world who share interests and activities related to IP through various social networks (Facebook, Twitter, … etc) which represent effective tools to stay up-to-date on all Intellectual Property issues.

AGIP introduced an online discussion tool on its website designed to solicit input from the IP community on the latest events, issues and news related to IP as an attempt to make its web more interactive to visitors than just a standard portfolio site. The new blog allows visitors to interact with AGIP staff and other visitors on many issues of interest for the IP industry.

In addition, AGIP launched a trademark logo quiz to trigger public trademark logo knowledge, the winner is being selected randomly from all submitted correct answers, and wins Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Laptop (TAGITOP), the first state-of-the art Arab laptop produced by Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Organization (TAG-Org).
