Welcome to the 2021 edition of IP STARS.
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 published the firm rankings for patent work. This is the fourth set of ranking results from the research for the 2021 edition of IP STARS, which started in September 2020. Today's news follows last month's announcement of our IP Stars list for 2021.
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.
Below is a snapshot of our results publication timeline, which is subject to change. Once the results are ready, we will publish an announcement on this website and inform firms and practitioners via email.
