IP STARS 2019 firm rankings for IP transactions

Gold winners award with three stars

Managing IP has published its law firm rankings for IP transactions work in the US and the UK

Having spent the past few years obtaining market feedback and relevant data, Managing IP is delighted to launch this new firm rankings table. This practice area is not actually new to us: we have been ranking IP transactional practitioners since 2013 and recognise exceptional IP transactions work in the Managing IP awards programme.

For this first edition, we have only produced law firm rankings for the US (see here) and the UK (see here and here). This is an online-only publication which we intend to expand next year (December 2020), including to other major jurisdictions for IP. Read the research methodology here

This is the last firm rankings table published for the 2019 edition of IP STARS. All the firm and individual practitioner rankings for this year are now available on our website ipstars.com. We will start publishing and announcing the 2020 rankings from February 2020.

There is an increased awareness of IP as a business asset and not just a legal right to enforce or defend. We hope that this new table will assist those looking for specialist commercial IP advice when buying IP rights and/or exploiting or extracting value from them. 

Congratulations to all the firms and practitioners ranked this year.
