The IP Stars 2022 rankings by Managing Intellectual Property (MIP) include Rothwell Figg in the top tier for Patent Contentious and Patent Prosecution in the District of Columbia. The firm is also ranked for Life Sciences IP and Patent Prosecution nationally. The IP Stars guide, now covering over six IP practice areas and more than 70 jurisdictions, is the most comprehensive, leading specialist rankings publication for the IP profession. The firm also has six attorneys identified in the 2022 edition of IP Stars.
To arrive at the IP Stars firm rankings, MIP looks at a firm's strengths in the practice area concerned and client outcomes achieved. The key information evaluated includes: the experts in the firm, track record, sectors covered, and depth of resources; the size of workload and its level of sophistication; changes within the firm, especially staff hires or departures, and client wins or losses; and competitor and client feedback received. These factors are assessed cumulatively and no one factor is decisive. For example, positive feedback on its own does not guarantee a higher ranking or any ranking. When assessing firms, MIP may also review and take account of any relevant data obtained in previous years. Researchers can also rank firms and/or individuals using independent research data.
No firm or individual can pay to be ranked or to influence the results and there is no fee to participate in the IP Stars research. Participation in the research does not guarantee listing. To learn more, please visit ipstars.com.
