Welcome to the 2021 edition of IP STARS and Managing IP Awards programme.

Please read the information on this page carefully to understand what we have published and what to expect from us in the coming weeks and months.

Managing IP has today revealed the Top 250 Women in IP list for 2021. Today's news follows the announcement of the 2021 firm rankings for patent work and the Asia-Pacific Awards.

We are no longer accepting submissions for the 2021 edition of IP STARS and MIP Awards. However, we are still conducting independent research because we have more rankings to publish in the coming months.
