MIP recognises the best 'up-and-coming IP practitioners'


Bird & Bird's international IP team are delighted to announce that 24 of our lawyers across our network have been recognised as a ‘Rising Star for IP’ in the 2020/21 edition of a special publication, which is produced by the IP STARS (Managing IP) research team. The publication recognises some of the best up-and-coming IP practitioners in private practice who contributed to the success of their firms and clients. Although selection is primarily based on an individual’s contributions and expertise, we can also take account of their activities in the IP community.

The research for the IP STARS rankings is conducted rigorously and impartially. No firm or individual can pay to be ranked, and there is no fee to participate in the research. The full list by jurisdiction can be found here.
