Many IP firms founded or co-founded by women are relatively new or small in size and not well known compared to the big, long-established IP firms. In April 2023, Managing IP launched this dedicated page to showcase these firms.
For the avoidance of doubt, this is not a rankings publication and Managing IP does not endorse any firm listed on this page. Please read about using the content on our website here.
To be added to this page, Managing IP must be satisfied that the firm was founded or co-founded by a woman. Readers should also note that some of the firms listed on this page are not ranked (many firms on our website are not ranked).
This page will be monitored and updated regularly, especially to add more firms or remove firms that no longer exist.
Managing IP has a long and proud history of supporting diversity in the IP profession.
Apart from reporting on important news and providing insights, Managing IP has also used its platforms and position in the industry to promote and showcase diverse talent in the IP community. For example, Managing IP has hosted or supported events for women in IP and business law since 2011 and supported the creation of IP Inclusive, the UK's leading diversity initiative for the IP profession.
