About IP Stars

Each year IP STARS research analysts obtain information from thousands of firms, IP practitioners and their clients through interviews, email and online surveys. Before compiling the rankings, they also conduct independent research, including an analysis of publicly available information (such as court or IP office data) and the existing data they hold on firms.

Firms are assessed on expertise, workload, market reputation, track record, outcomes achieved for clients, and unique strengths in a given practice area. Judgments about which firms to include in the rankings, and which tier and practice area they should be in, take account of all this information.
