Awards research process
The shortlists for the Managing IP Awards were based on
information obtained during the research for the 2018 edition
of IP STARS. In the IP STARS surveys for 2018, we asked firms
to self-nominate as well as nominate their competitors for a
number of awards. We review all available information,
including all survey submissions and interview notes, and
conduct independent research before producing the shortlists
and picking the winners.
The research for IP STARS is rigorous and impartial. The
Managing IP awards are not influenced by any commercial
relationship with Managing IP or rankings in IP STARS. Any
firm, regardless of ranking, can win any of our awards. A firm
can also be shortlisted even if it did not make a firm survey
submission, but in such case we may require further information

information available between September 2017 and January 2018.
Where appropriate, information after this period may have been
