Trade mark Stars and firm analyses published

IP Stars stacked 400

The list of highly recommended trade mark practitioners and firm analyses for Managing IP – IP Stars (2016) have been published online. The IP Stars handbooks are also available to pick up at the INTA Annual Meeting

The Stars

This year’s publication, which for the first time is split into Trade Mark and Patent Stars online, features highly recommended practitioners in private practice in over 40 jurisdictions.

Visit ipstars.com and click on the relevant country page (or States under 'United States') to see all the names. Later this year we will add the practice areas of those listed – if they have provided this information.

Two other lists have also been published: Top 250 Women in IP and Corporate IP Stars. Congratulations to all who made the list this year!

Methodology

The list is based on market feedback and other independent information obtained by our team of researchers. The research is impartial and rigorous. No practitioner can pay to be included or solicit recommendations from colleagues. Moreover, self-nominations are not considered, and Managing IP does not recommend or endorse any particular firm or individual. For more information about IP Stars, including FAQs, click here.

Ranked firm analysis

Our latest analysis of many ranked firms can be found by clicking the ‘analysis’ tab on the country page. The aim is to provide brief practice overview, notable practitioners, recent developments and pertinent market commentaries received on behalf of firms.

At present, we only cover firms in tiers 1 and 2, but in some jurisdictions we feature a few firms outside these two tiers. In the coming months we intend to publish commentaries received on behalf of others. 

Please note that we do not have a separate patent analysis for firms ranked in the United States. Patent analysis for firms ranked outside the United States will be published in July 2016. 

Using our content and logos

All of the above, including firm rankings, will remain on our website until we publish the 2016/17 research results next year. However, we can change certain information, such as firm name, as and when we receive updates. You may use excerpts from our analysis in your marketing collateral; if you do so please attribute as follows: ‘Managing IP - IP Stars (2016)'. If you need our latest firm ranking or individual listing logo please contact Nick Heath (for EMEA and India), Matthew Siu (for Asia), or Alissa Rozen (for Americas).

IP Stars at the INTA Annual Meeting

The IP Stars handbooks (US edition and Global trade mark and copyright edition) are also now available. If you are attending the INTA Annual Meeting in Orlando then do visit us at booth #207 where you will find copies and other Managing IP publications. Stars who have submitted their photos can also pick up their IP Stars Trading Cards. Share yours on Twitter using hashtag #IPStarsTCards.
