Seed IP Law Group LLP has been designated as a “Highly Recommended Law Firm” for intellectual property matters in Washington State for 2019, in the latest edition of Managing Intellectual Property IP STARS, the leading specialist guide to IP law firms and practitioners worldwide. Managing IP has been researching and ranking firms since 1996, covering over 50 jurisdictions. Research for IP STARS covers contentious and non-contentious IP work. It is carried out by an experienced team of research analysts and journalists from offices in Hong Kong, London and New York, who obtain information from thousands of firms, IP practitioners and their clients through interviews, email and online surveys. Before compiling the rankings, their research analysts also conduct their own independent research, including an analysis of publicly available information (such as court or IP office data) and existing data held on firms. The aspects assessed for the firm rankings include expertise, workload, market reputation/track record, outcomes achieved for clients, and unique strengths in a given practice area. Judgements about which firms to include in the rankings, and which tier and practice area they should be in, take account of all this information. The research is conducted rigorously and impartially. No firm or individual can pay to be ranked or to influence the results. IP STARS is not a directory of all firms offering IP services, and there are many firms and individuals, including those that participated in the research, that are not ranked.
FIRM RANKINGS: Firms are ranked alphabetically in tiers or as highly recommended or recommended. The total number of firms listed varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. The number of jurisdictions, practice areas, firms or individuals featured in IP STARS is subject to change each year. For most jurisdictions, the rankings are split into prosecution and contentious work, whereas in smaller jurisdictions firms are ranked for their IP practice as a whole.
