Every year since 1994, Managing IP have been recognising outstanding talent across a variety of IP practice areas and in more than 70 jurisdictions. Managing IP’s research analysts in London, New York and Hong Kong analyse thousands of firms, IP practitioners and their clients. The research is carried out by email, interviews and online surveys supplemented by Managing IP’s own independent research. The listing prides itself in being completely impartial and for never taking a fee from firms or practitioners to participate in the review.

We are raising a glass (on zoom) to our extremely hard working and dedicated UK and European Patent Attorney, Dr Annette Flaherty, for being named in this year’s IP STARS listing. With a strong background in mechanical engineering, including a PhD, and almost 20 years’ experience in the IP profession, Annette’s practice covers a huge range of sectors including oil and gas, renewables, automotive and industrial engineering. IP STARS particularly value Annette’s knowledge and proactive advice relating to patent strategy planning and counselling.

Congratulations Annette!
