Does your firm have an Intellectual Property Star? If so, be sure to submit him or her for international recognition in the Managing Intellectual Property (MIP) 2017 IP Stars Handbook.
MIP researches and ranks firms in over 70 jurisdictions across the globe. Each year, MIP publishes firm rankings as “‘Recommended’ or ‘Highly Recommended’ for the relevant IP work.” This includes “IP protection, exploitation and enforcement.” For major markets MIP has a separate table for copyright.
An IP Star is described by MIP as an IP professional in private practice who is highly recommended by clients and peers. These individuals will be featured along with their industry focus, specialties, and location.
The IP Stars handbook will also feature “Corporate IP Stars” and the “Top 250 Women in IP.” The submission deadline is November 7. According to the MIP web site, this is a firm deadline and will not be extended. The deadline to submit client referees is November 11. Be sure to use the online form and referee spreadsheet template!
