Managing IP Americas Awards 2022: all the winners revealed

We hosted the first instalment of the 17th annual Managing IP Awards to celebrate remarkable IP achievements by law firms and in-house teams in the Americas region

We hosted the Americas Awards 2022 ceremony last night, April 7, to recognise and celebrate remarkable intellectual property achievements by law firms, companies and individuals last year.

More than 150 guests joined us at the Lotte New York Palace in New York City to find out who won, and why, in a whole host of categories. The ceremony was our first in-person awards event since we suspended such events in 2020 because of the pandemic. We thank all our guests and event partners for making the Americas Awards 2022 a success. 

You can find all of the winners below, and the shortlist is here. We intend to share more information about the awards, including photos, on LinkedIn (e.g. here and here) and Twitter (@IP_STARS and @ManagingIP), so keep an eye on our social media pages.

All the firms, companies and individuals recognised this year can contact our Americas business development manager George Reeves to discuss various opportunities to share their achievements with our audience and the IP community.

We now turn our attention to the Asia-Pacific Awards 2022, which will be announced online on June 1. See the shortlist here.

Congratulations to all the winners.

Research methodology

The Managing IP Awards programme is the most comprehensive and widely respected IP law firm awards event in the legal industry. Now in its 17th year, the programme covers several IP practice areas and more than 50 jurisdictions. 

Each year our research analysts obtain information from thousands of firms, IP practitioners and their clients through interviews, email and online surveys.

Before compiling the shortlists, our researchers evaluated work data supplied by firms and, where applicable, reviewed publicly available information such as court and IP office records. They focused on work done or concluded in the previous year, particularly looking for case studies that were of great significance to clients and/or IP law and practice. Firms, companies and individuals can also be shortlisted based on the researcher's independent research findings.

The research for the IP STARS rankings and the Managing IP Awards programme is rigorous and impartial. There is no fee for participating in our research, but participation does not guarantee recognition.

The awards are not influenced by any commercial relationship with Managing IP, and no firm or individual can pay to influence the results. Any firm, regardless of its ranking in IP STARS, can win the Managing IP award.

The Managing IP Awards programme is distinct and separate from any other legal industry awards programmes organised by Euromoney and promoted on our website.

Please contact Chris Adams or Kingsley Egbuonu if you have any questions about the Managing IP Americas Awards.

History of the Managing IP Awards

Managing IP launched its awards programme in 2006. The ceremonies attract hundreds of guests, including in-house counsel and prominent public officials in the IP industry. It is widely regarded as the premier IP law firm awards event in the legal industry. In total, more than 1,000 guests attended the ceremonies in 2019 and 2020.

The Managing IP Awards programme has evolved and grown over the years. We now host regional ceremonies instead of a global ceremony in London, and the research covers more than seven practice areas and over 50 jurisdictions.
