Welcome to the third edition of Managing IP’s Rising Stars list

 

Managing IP launched its official Rising Stars publication in 2018 (read more here). This special publication, which is produced by the IP STARS research team, recognises some of the best up-and-coming IP practitioners in private practice who contributed to the success of their firms and clients. Although selection is primarily based on an individual’s contributions and expertise, we can also take account of their activities in the IP community.

This publication is based on the information obtained during the research for the IP STARS rankings and MIP awards programme. The number of firms and jurisdictions covered each year is subject to change. Our aim each year is to find new talent and expand the publication. Read our methodology for the firm and individual practitioner rankings here.

The individuals we select as Rising Stars typically have less than 10 years’ post-qualification experience and are below the position of partner or equivalent level. In certain circumstances, we can consider and rank individuals with more than 10 years of experience and new junior partners. However, individuals do not normally retain their Rising Star ranking once they have been promoted to partner. We now assign the 'notable practitioner' tag to individuals who were ranked in the previous edition.

This publication complements the Corporate IP Stars list (for in-house IP practitioners) and the Top 250 Women in IP list (the leading female IP practitioners in private practice), all of which are produced by the IP STARS research team. 

For the avoidance of doubt, Managing IP’s Rising Stars publication is not connected to the Euromoney Legal Media Group Rising Stars awards programme. Furthermore, the fact that an individual was mentioned in our firm editorial or ranked in a previous edition does not guarantee ranking in a future edition.

The research for the IP STARS rankings is conducted rigorously and impartially. No firm or individual can pay to be ranked, and there is no fee to participate in our research. Firms and individuals can, however, pay to publish their IP practice profile on our website.
