Rankings & Recognition
Smart & Biggar tops the Canadian patent rankings in Managing Intellectual Property’s 2016 IP Stars Handbook: Patents
March 2, 2016

Smart & Biggar has once again earned the top ranking as a Tier One firm in the areas of patent contentious and patent prosecution in Managing Intellectual Property's 2016 IP Stars Handbook: Patents. The firm is proud to be one of only two Canadian firms to receive this prominent recognition in both categories. This is the third consecutive year that Smart & Biggar has received the highest ranking. 

IP Stars is Managing Intellectual Property’s specialist guide to the leading IP firms and practitioners worldwide. The guide reviews the world's leading IP firms for prosecution and contentious work and is the longest running analysis in the market. Rankings in the Handbooks are based on extensive research among IP practitioners carried out over a six month period. A team of researchers in London, New York and Hong Kong sought responses from thousands of practitioners by phone, surveys, email and in face-to-face meetings, making this the most comprehensive and authoritative survey of the IP legal market.

Firms cannot vote for their own inclusion or solicit votes from associates.  Moreover, the tables are not an exhaustive list of every firm in each jurisdiction; inclusion is based on merit and recommendation by peers and clients. Managing IP does not endorse or recommend any particular firm, and no firm has paid to be included in the rankings.
