Brit Nelson and Wasif Qureshi Named Global IP Stars by ‘Managing Intellectual Property’


Jackson Walker is proud to announce Houston partners Brit Nelson and Wasif Qureshi have been recognized as Global IP Stars by Managing Intellectual Property (MIP) magazine.

Every year, MIP obtains information from thousands of firms, practitioners, and clients through interviews, emails, and online surveys. This information, combined with independent analyses regarding experience, outcomes achieved for clients, and unique strengths in a practice area, is gathered over a six-month research period to rank practitioners. Only the top 10 percent of the around 25,000 to 30,000 nominations and client references received every year are selected as Global IP Stars. Recognition as a Global IP Star is based solely on merit.

Founded in 1990, MIP is a global resource for intellectual property news and analysis with an international team of journalists based in New York, London, and Hong Kong. Since 1996, the publication has expanded its guide to include over 80 jurisdictions, making it the most extensive analysis of the industry.
