The Corporate IP Stars list, which was launched in 2015, is an annual publication which recognises senior in-house practitioners for their contributions to the management of their company's intellectual property assets and/or their influence in the IP ecosystem.
The number of individuals, companies and jurisdictions featured each year is subject to change. The 2022 edition recognised more than 350 in-house practitioners in more than 200 companies. To see the 2022 in-house IP Stars, go to a jurisdiction page, click on the ‘Practitioners’ tab and select 'Corporate star' on the 'Rating' filter.
The IP STARS research analysts produce the Corporate IP Stars list, with input from Managing IP’s editorial team. They use the information, especially nominations by private practice and in-house practitioners, obtained during the research period for the 2022 edition of the IP STARS rankings and the Managing IP Awards programme. The research covered more than 30 jurisdictions. Read about our methodology here.
As part of the research, we also take account of activities that support or develop the IP ecosystem and corporate social responsibility initiatives.
All our rankings and listings are subject to change each year.
If you have any feedback, suggestions or questions about the Corporate IP Stars list please write to us (email here).
Congratulations to all the individuals who made this year’s list.
