Top 250 Women in IP

Welcome to the 2017 edition of IP STARS Top 250 Women in IP. This list recognises female IP practitioners in private practice who have performed exceptionally for their clients and firms in the past year. All the women listed here are also individual IP stars in their respective jurisdictions. Congratulations to all who made this year’s list.

Those listed can request for our special Top 250 IP Star logo which they can use in place of the general IP star logo. This can be obtained from our business development team.

We always welcome feedback on IP STARS so if you have any or would like to participate in the 2018 research please send an email to research@managingip.com

Methodology

This list is based on the global research for our legal directory IP STARS. There is no special or separate submission required to be considered for this list, and the countries featured are subject to change each year. The methodology includes interviews and surveys of IP practitioners in private practice and in-house. Detailed information about IP STARS and its methodology can be found here.
