Each year, a group of impartial judges gathers information about thousands of candidates from firms, clients, interviews, emails, and online surveys. Potential winners are considered and chosen based on their “expertise, workload, market reputation/track record, outcomes achieved for clients, and unique strengths in a given practice area.” Recognition as an IP Star is based on a weighted review of information submitted by firms, publicly available information, and market feedback. More information can be found at IPStars.com.
