About the report

This annual listing of Europe’s leading patent law firms is based on recommendations by clients and peers, as compiled by the FT’s research partner Statista.

The research focuses on the most recommended patent law firms for services around patent prosecution and patent strategy consultation in Europe. Composition of the lists is based on an online survey of patent attorneys working in patent law firms and as experts in the patent departments of companies (peer-to-peer survey); and clients who have consulted with or commissioned a patent law firm.
