the trademark lawyer

law firm rankings

Throughout the year, The Trademark Lawyer magazine carries out extensive research to highlight leading firms in the IP and trademark field in each jurisdiction to recognize the hard work and improvement firms have achieved and to aid clients select the best firm for their needs. Over four issues we cover the following jurisdictions:

Countries within jurisdictions may differ year-to-year.

We publish the Top 10 law firms for each country in each jurisdiction based on the research we have carried out. The Top 10 is published in alphabetical order. Ranked firms are able to purchase a Rankings Package, details listed below, but firms cannot pay for a position in our rankings – the Top 10 are produced from our research.

When compiling our law firm rankings, we do not ask for a submission fee or an inclusion fee, we do not discriminate against any firm that does not support our publications financially, so if your firm is chosen it is upon merit and will appear within our rankings with no compulsory financial expense.

Research and selection criteria

Our Editorial and Research Team take many factors in to consideration when determining the Top 10 law firms for each country in each jurisdiction.

Some of the aspects researched are:

  • Existing market reputation in the field;
  • Cited achievements within the last year;
  • Work in niche areas and unique strengths;
  • Accessibility;
  • Client testimonials;
  • Regularity of informative materials being promoted and engagement by the firm (e.g. news/articles, press releases, interaction and presence on social channels);
  • Website ranking and usability;
  • Customer testimonials and recommendation;
  • Diversity, equity, and inclusion performance as a firm;
  • Third party rankings and achievement recognition;
  • Activity in the legal space (e.g., with associations, conferences, webinars).


We conduct research into which firms should feature, but firms may also recommend themselves, or be recommended by third parties, for consideration via a nomination form found below.

The selection process is carried out to the best of our research team’s ability with the materials accessible and from an unbiased standpoint. Our selection process is not affixed to our sales team and firms cannot pay to feature in the rankings; a Rankings Package is only available for purchase to ranked firms after our research team has produced the final list. A selection of factors will be considered for each firm, not all factors will be considered from each firm and some factors may carry more weight than others.

The selection is based on available resources and The Trademark Lawyer rankings should be used as a resource and a guide only. We recommend that all organizations seeking legal advice conduct their own research in addition before selecting a firm that best suits their personal requirements.

Publication and distribution

*The rankings will feature in our Magazine both in hardcopy an online. Our online edition is free-to-read for approximately six-eight weeks, allowing access for all IP professionals seeking to view the ranked firms, and for ranked firms to share the recognition they have received.
