The IAM Patent 1000 is unique in being a one-stop resource that focuses exclusively on naming best-in-class patent prosecution, licensing and litigation practitioners on a global basis, as well as expert witnesses in the United States. For five months, a dedicated research team working out of our offices in London and Hong Kong conducted detailed interviews with thousands of private practice lawyers and attorneys based in dozens of countries, as well as the users of their services, in order to identify the practitioners and practices that are considered to excel at providing patent-related legal services. In the United States, we also asked interviewees to name the expert witnesses they turn to when they need world-class input on both damages and technical issues. The firms and individuals listed on the following pages are the results of that research.
All those listed in the IAM Patent 1000 are included because we received substantial positive feedback about them from multiple sources. We do not claim that we have managed to find every top name in every jurisdiction covered; but we are confident that we have included the vast majority, and that everybody who is listed fully deserves the recognition. For a detailed methodology that explains the research process, as well as how the research team decides who should finally be listed, please click here.
In addition to the listings and editorial, there is further biographical information on some of the individuals featured at the end of each country section, and on some of the selected firms at the end of each regional chapter. All those selected for inclusion in the IAM Patent 1000 are offered the opportunity to publish this information for a fee – some opt to do so, while others do not. Either way, it has no effect on listing or ranking decisions. The research was conducted entirely independently of any commercial considerations.
