The awards - the “Food, Beverages & Tobacco Team of the Year Award” and the “Europe, Middle East & Africa Team of the Year Award” - were conferred on the 30-strong Pernod Ricard team this week at the World Trademark Review’s Industry Awards.

Pernod Ricard owns 18 internationally acclaimed global brands and many local brands, including 18 recognised as leaders in their local markets.
These annual awards are designed to recognise the vitally important work carried out by in-house trademark counsel, and to identify the teams and individuals that are performing their functions to the highest possible standards. The winners are selected from nominations received from the global trademark community.  The awards were presented at the Harvard Club in Boston in May 25th.
Headed by Audrey Yayon-Dauvet, the Pernod Ricard IP team is made up of over 30 people located in six hubs around the world. Pernod Ricard was recently awarded the "Intellectual Property Team of the Year" Award at the 2010 European Counsel Awards in London and the trophy of "Intellectual Property Director of the Year" was awarded to Audrey Yayon-Dauvet at the 9th Law and Finance Awards in Paris.

Ian FitzSimons, General Counsel of Pernod Ricard commented: "We are delighted to see that Pernod Ricard has once again been recognised by the trademark and IP community for its sterling efforts in the field of intellectual property.  These two awards demonstrate that Pernod Ricard's IP team now ranks amongst the best global IP teams and we would like to thank the IP experts who have chosen to nominate us."
