Welcome to the 2018 edition of Managing Intellectual Property’s Top 250 Women in IP. This special publication recognises female practitioners in private practice who have performed exceptionally for their clients and firms in the past year. Some of them were also involved in IP advocacy and/or corporate social responsibility initiatives in their jurisdictions.
These leading female practitioners have been selected from our general IP stars list, which will be officially announced next month. The list is based on information obtained during the research for this year's edition of IP STARS. The research was concluded in February 2018.
Congratulations to all who made this year’s Top 250 Women in IP list!
About IP STARS
IP STARS is the leading specialist guide to IP firms and practitioners worldwide. The research, which covers contentious and non-contentious IP work in more than 80 jurisdictions, is carried out over a six-month period by an experienced team of research analysts in our offices in Hong Kong, London and New York.
Each year we obtain information from thousands of firms, IP practitioners and their clients through interviews, emails and online surveys. Researchers also conduct their own independent research, which includes an analysis of publicly available information and existing data we hold. Following the research, we publish firm rankings, lists of highly recommended practitioners, and editorial commentaries on the ranked firms. IP STARS is an annual publication and therefore subject to change each year.
The research is conducted rigorously and impartially, and there is no fee to pay to participate. No firm or individual can pay to be ranked or to influence the results. For the avoidance of doubt, Managing IP does not endorse any particular firm or individual.
IP STARS is available in print (IP STARS Handbook) and online (ipstars.com). The handbooks are widely distributed, and copies can be found at events such as the INTA Annual Meeting.
