Rankings: Managing IP's Corporate IP Stars 2022

Corporate IP Stars 2022

We have published this year’s Corporate IP Stars list, an annual rankings publication which recognises senior in-house practitioners

The Corporate IP Stars list recognises senior in-house practitioners for their contributions to the management of their company's intellectual property assets and/or their influence in the IP ecosystem. The list complements Managing IP's Ones to Watch list, which showcases the junior in-house practitioners on the rise.

This year's list features more than 350 practitioners and over 200 companies across the world. To see the Corporate IP Stars and other ranked practitioners, go to a jurisdiction's page and click on the 'Practitioners' tab. See all the jurisdictions below.

We know there are more senior in-house practitioners out there who can be considered for this list. Our aim each year is to find and recognise more of them, and research is already underway for the 2023 edition.

If you have feedback, suggestions or questions about the Corporate IP Stars list, please write to us here.

Congratulations to all the individuals who made this year’s list.

Research for the 2023 edition

We have started the research for the 2023 edition of IP STARS rankings and Managing IP Awards programme. We are inviting in-house counsel and teams to participate in the research. Read about the in-house research here.

About the Corporate IP Stars list

Managing IP launched the Corporate IP Stars list in 2015. The list is produced by the IP STARS research team, with input from Managing IP's editorial team.

This year's list is based on all the information obtained during the research period for the 2022 edition of IP STARS rankings and Managing IP Awards programme (September 2021 to February 2022). The research covered more than 30 jurisdictions. The number of practitioners, companies and jurisdictions featured each year is subject to change. Learn more about the publication here.
