About the survey

The survey covers over 70 jurisdictions, and the rankings are based on extensive research among IP practitioners carried out over six months starting in September 2019. A team of researchers in London, New York and Hong Kong sought responses from thousands of practitioners by phone, surveys, email and in face-to-face meetings, making this the most comprehensive and authoritative survey of the IP legal market yet published.
