The WIPR Leaders research team has been seeking expert IP professionals to nominate peers who they feel are exceptional in their field. Throughout their research, they have contacted more than 15,000 individuals, both in-house counsel and private practice attorney. They further examined every individual that participated to ensure the nominations were valid. They vetted the nominations practice history, notable cases and their involvement in the wider IP community through speaking engagements and published articles as well as academic responsibilities.
All Leaders profiled in this guide are based entirely on merit for their expertise in their domain. We congratulate our professionals for this recognition and look forward to future successes in this new publication.
