ip-stars-image-600.png

We have revealed the leading intellectual property practitioners in private practice across more than 50 jurisdictions

We are delighted to announce the release of the IP Stars list 2022. This comes after months of research, analysing firm submissions, practitioner surveys, client feedback, and publicly available information. See our research methodology below.

IP Stars are senior practitioners who have been recommended or identified as leaders in their firm and/or jurisdiction. This year, we ranked more than 5,000 practitioners, including 349 new practitioners. Below are some of the firms with ranked practitioners. 

Visit ipstars.com to see this year’s IP Stars; when on the site, go to a jurisdiction or a firm’s page and click on the ‘Practitioners’ tab.

Congratulations to all the practitioners ranked this year.

More rankings

Thus far, we have published firm rankings for trademark and general intellectual property work. We have more rankings to come this year, including the firm rankings for patent work, the Top 250 Women in IP list, and the Corporate IP Stars list. You can follow our research announcements here.




 

About IP STARS

Managing IP published its first legal directory in 1994 and rebranded it in 2013 as IP STARS. The IP STARS guide has expanded over the years and now covers over six IP practice areas and more than 70 jurisdictions, making it the most comprehensive, leading specialist rankings publication for the IP profession.

 

Research methodology

The research for these rankings was conducted rigorously and impartially by our team of research analysts in London, New York, and Hong Kong. Each year, we request information from thousands of firms, IP practitioners and their clients through interviews, email, and online surveys.

 

Practitioner rankings

The individuals we normally select as IP Stars are senior practitioners who serve as partners or equivalent in their firms. We do not select non-partners or junior practitioners to be ranked as IP Stars, except in very special circumstances. After selecting the IP Stars, we assign at least one practice area rating, e.g. patent star, to reflect what we reasonably believe to be their main area(s) of expertise.

The 2022 IP Stars list is based on information available at the time the core research was completed (February 2022). Except for firm name changes, any subsequent developments or information that could influence this year’s IP Stars list will be considered during the research for the 2023 edition. Our research analysts regularly monitor firms and their practitioners throughout the year and, therefore, Managing IP reserves the right to change any ranking and/or remove a firm or individual from our website at any time.

For the avoidance of doubt, the ranking tag does not suggest or indicate that the expertise of the practitioner is limited to the practice area in question. Because many IP Stars will have experience in different areas of IP law and practice, we offer them the opportunity (for a fee) to publish detailed information about their practice. Managing IP does not recommend or endorse any practitioner for IP work. Please read the terms of use concerning our content here.

The IP STARS rankings are not influenced by any commercial relationship, including advertising, with Managing IP or IP STARS. There is no fee to pay to participate in our research.

The IP STARS publication is not a directory of all firms and individuals offering IP services. There are firms and practitioners that we have not recognised even though we have research data about them. Participation in our research does not guarantee ranking. The rankings are subject to change each year.
