The 2016 World IP Survey, conducted by Managing Intellectual Property, covers more than 80 countries. The rankings are based on extensive research among IP practitioners carried out over a six month period, starting in September last year. A team of researchers in London, New York and Hong Kong sought responses from thousands of practitioners by phone, surveys, email and face-to-face meetings, making this the most comprehensive and authoritative survey of the IP legal market yet published.
