Blake Morgan has been recognised for its contribution to law on the world stage with an honour at the annual conference of one of the biggest international legal alliances.

The law firm was presented with a Founder Member award at the 36th International Conference of the TAGLaw network at a ceremony at the Intercontinental Le Grand, Paris.

The award recognises Blake Morgan’s international expertise and contribution to the network, a worldwide alliance of independent law firms.

Blake Morgan was a founder member of TAGLaw when it began in 1998 and has remained in the network as it has grown to become one of the five largest legal alliances in the world, with more than 290 members in over 100 countries.

Jill Bainbridge, a litigation Partner and intellectual property specialist at Blake Morgan, is co-chair of TAGLaw’s Intellectual Property Committee.

She attended the conference to co-chair a debate on developments in design law and the possible implications of Brexit on designs and intellectual property filing strategies.

Jill Bainbridge said: “Blake Morgan is very proud to have played a key part in TAGLaw since its inception almost two decades ago, and to have seen it grow into a strong and influential alliance of law firms around the globe which consistently achieves high rankings in the legal directories such as Chambers and Partners. The network enables us to secure advice and assistance for clients around the world from locally respected advisers with whom we have a strong relationship.

“This award recognises the firm’s significant contribution to TAGLaw and its various working groups, and we are very proud to have been honoured in this way and very much look forward to playing an active role going forward.”

Manoj Styche-Patel, Divisional Director of Commercial Services at Blake Morgan, was at the conference as a panellist on a Corporate and Mergers Acquisitions debate about the implications of Brexit. Mike Wilson, Managing Partner at Blake Morgan, was also in attendance.
