The Corporate IP Stars list is an annual rankings publication which 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 was recently launched to recognise junior in-house counsel.
The IP STARS research analysts produce the Corporate IP Stars list, with input from Managing IP’s editorial team. They use the information, especially nominations by private practice and in-house practitioners, obtained during the research for the IP STARS rankings and the Managing IP Awards programme.
We expanded our coverage this year, featuring 31 jurisdictions and more than 200 companies. Click on any of the jurisdictions below to see the Corporate IP Stars and other practitioner rankings.
We know there will be more individuals who can be considered for this publication. Our aim each year is to find and recognise more senior in-house IP practitioners — research is already underway for the 2022 edition (read more here). All our rankings are subject to change each year. Read about our methodology here.
If you have any feedback, suggestions or questions about the Corporate IP Stars list please write to us (email here).
Congratulations to all the individuals who made this year’s list.
