Welcome to the 2018 edition of
Managing Intellectual Property’s Top 250 Women in
IP. This special publication recognises female practitioners in
private practice who have performed exceptionally for their
clients and firms in the past year. Some of them were also
involved in IP advocacy and/or corporate social responsibility
initiatives in their jurisdictions.
These leading female practitioners have been selected from
our general IP stars list, which will be officially announced
next month. The list is based on information obtained during
the research for this year's edition of IP STARS. The research
was concluded in February 2018.
Congratulations to all who made this year’s Top
250 Women in IP list!
About IP STARS
IP STARS is the leading specialist guide to IP firms and
practitioners worldwide. The research, which covers contentious
and non-contentious IP work in more than 80 jurisdictions, is
carried out over a six-month period by an experienced
team of research analysts in our offices in Hong Kong, London
and New York.
Each year we obtain information from thousands of firms, IP
practitioners and their clients through interviews, emails and
online surveys. Researchers also conduct their own independent
research, which includes an analysis of publicly available
information and existing data we hold. Following the research,
we publish firm rankings, lists of highly recommended
practitioners, and editorial commentaries on the ranked firms.
IP STARS is an annual publication and therefore subject to
change each year.
The research is conducted rigorously and impartially, and
there is no fee to pay to participate. No firm or individual
can pay to be ranked or to influence the results. For the
avoidance of doubt, Managing IP does not endorse any particular
firm or individual.
IP STARS is available in print (IP STARS Handbook) and
ipstars.com). The handbooks are widely
distributed, and copies can be found at events such as the INTA
Annual Meeting. Read more about IP STARS on our website.
