Managing IP’s Corporate IP Stars list for 2021 has been confirmed. Read more about the list on our dedicated page here.

This special publication recognises in-house practitioners for their contributions to the management of their company's intellectual property assets and/or their influence in the IP ecosystem. 

We expanded our coverage this year, featuring 31 jurisdictions and more than 200 companies. To see the 2021 IP Stars, go to a company or jurisdiction page and click on the ‘Practitioners’ tab.

We know there are more excellent individuals out there who also deserve to be recognised. Our aim each year is to find and recognise more in-house practitioners — research is already underway for the 2022 edition.



Managing IP published its first legal directory in 1994 and rebranded it in 2013 as IP STARS. The publication quickly established itself as the leading specialist guide to IP law firms and practitioners worldwide. The research for IP STARS covers several IP practice areas and more than 70 jurisdictions, making it the most comprehensive and widely respected guide in the IP profession.
