Founded in 1990, Managing Intellectual Property has researched and ranked leading intellectual property law firms since 1996. Their IP Stars handbook is often considered to be among the most authoritative and comprehensive lists of intellectual property experts. Their process for choosing attorneys involves both high level surveys and interviews of law firms, agencies and in-house counsel conducted by impartial research analysts.  Because there is no cost to participate, inclusion in the IP Stars lists is based on merit and peer recognition alone.
