The fifth edition of the IAM Patent 1000 2016 – The World’s Leading Patent Professionals is now out and available as a fully searchable, free-to-access online resource.
The publication identifies and profiles leading private practice patent professionals and firms in the world’s key jurisdictions. It is unique in being a one-stop shop 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.
The final listings in the IAM Patent 1000 are based on the results of five months of dedicated research undertaken by a six-person team working out of our offices in London and Hong Kong. Team members 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 and expert witness services.
