About Managing Intellectual Property’s IP STARS
IP STARS rankings are based on rigorous and extensive research carried out over a six-month period, starting from September each year. This includes a comprehensive and authoritative survey of the IP legal market. Research analysts from all over the world gather information from firms and their clients through interviews, emails and online surveys, as well as from existing public data. Rankings are determined by assessing the strength of the firm’s IP team, workload, outcomes achieved for clients and track record. Judgments about which firms to include in the rankings, and which tier and practice area they should be in, take account of all this information.
