About MIP’s Rising Stars List
Each year, MIP receives and analyses a lot of information, including client feedback, concerning junior IP practitioners (below partner or equivalent level) but only mention a few of them in our editorials. Following market feedback, Managing Intellectual Property decided to launch a Rising Stars publication in 2018 to highlight some of the best up-and-coming young IP practitioners who contribute to the success of their firms and clients. All things being equal, these practitioners have the potential to become future leaders in their firms and jurisdiction.
The individuals they select as Rising Stars typically have less than 10 years’ post-qualification experience and are below the position of partner or equivalent level. However, in certain circumstances, MIP can consider and rank individuals with more than 10 years of experience and new junior partners.
