About IP Stars and Managing IP
Based on extensive research carried out over six months of interviews among IP practitioners, the IP Stars and recommendations were created by a team of researchers in London, New York and Hong Kong.

In order to be named, a firm must receive a large number of recommendations from clients and cannot vote for their own inclusion, nor can they solicit votes from associates.
