The Managing IP awards programme recognises remarkable achievements and developments in the past 12 months.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Americas Awards ceremony in New York has been cancelled. However, Managing IP will publish the winners list on March 26 at 10am EST (New York). Read the shortlist and methodology here.

Managing IP’s head of business development Nicholas Heath will contact firms and individuals in due course.

If you have any questions about the shortlist or research, please contact our US IP STARS editor Chris Adams or the global research editor Kingsley Egbuonu.

Our thoughts are with our readers and others affected by the pandemic.
