About the Managing IP Awards
The Managing IP Awards programme is the most comprehensive and widely respected IP awards event in the world. Now in its 16th year, the programme covers a wide range of IP practice areas and more than 30 jurisdictions. Each year the research analysts obtain information from thousands of firms, IP practitioners and their clients through interviews, email and online surveys. Before compiling the shortlists, the researchers evaluate the work data supplied by firms and, where applicable, review publicly available information such as court and IP office records. They focus on work done or concluded in the previous year, particularly looking for case studies that were of great significance to clients and/or IP law and practice.
