We are delighted to announce that Daniel Hearn, Kieran O’Connell, Dr James Robinson and Grace Thomas-Edmond of AJ Park have been named in Managing IP’s 2019 Rising Stars publication. This special list recognises some of the best up-and-coming IP practitioners who have contributed to the success of their firms and clients.
Managing IP launched its official Rising Stars publication in 2018. Although selection is primarily based on an individual’s contributions and expertise, activities in the IP community are also taken into account.
The individuals selected as Rising Stars typically have less than 10 years' post-qualification experience and are below partner or equivalent level. However, in certain circumstances, Managing IP can consider and rank individuals with more than 10 years of experience and/or junior partners. The 2019 publication is based on the information obtained during the research period for the 2019 edition of IP STARS (September 2018 to February 2019).
Managing IP’s Rising Stars publication is produced by the IP STARS research team. The research for IP STARS is conducted rigorously and impartially. No firm or individual can pay to be ranked or win Managing IP’s awards and there is no fee to participate.
