Managing IP has today revealed the winners of the EMEA Awards 2021. Read about the EMEA Awards and the upcoming Americas Awards event here.

Earlier this month, MIP released the trade mark firm rankings for the 2021 edition of IP STARS (read about the rankings here).

We closed the firm submissions portal for the 2021 edition last year. However, we are still conducting individual surveys and independent research because we have more rankings to publish in the coming months. Read about our research here.

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 on our social media channels.
