MIP asia awards 168Managing IP has had a busy March – we held three awards dinners in the past three weeks in London, New York and Hong Kong to reveal the best intellectual property law firms and individuals around the globe.

You can view photos from all three dinners on our Facebook page (EMEA  here, Americas  here and Asia  here).

Asia Awards, held at the JW Marriott in Hong Kong on March 21 (shortlist here). 

I co-hosted all three dinners with my colleagues in our London, New York and Hong Kong offices. In addition to racking up air miles and jet lag, it was a pleasure getting to meet some of the most talented IP professionals in the business. And the winners from Chile even featured in their country's financial newspaper

Congratulations to all the winners!

Awards research process

The shortlists for the Managing IP Awards were based on information obtained during the research for the 2018 edition of IP STARS. In the IP STARS surveys for 2018, we asked firms to self-nominate as well as nominate their competitors for a number of awards. We review all available information, including all survey submissions and interview notes, and conduct independent research before producing the shortlists and picking the winners.

The research for IP STARS is rigorous and impartial. The Managing IP awards are not influenced by any commercial relationship with Managing IP or rankings in IP STARS. Any firm, regardless of ranking, can win any of our awards. A firm can also be shortlisted even if it did not make a firm survey submission, but in such case we may require further information from the firm. The 2018 awards were based on research information available between September 2017 and January 2018. Where appropriate, information after this period may have been considered.
