Submissions are now open for the ALB 2023 Intellectual Property Rankings. The rankings will be published in the May issues of ALB Asia and ALB China.


  • ALB will draw information from firm submissions, interviews, editorial resources and market suggestions to identify and rank the top firms for Intellectual Property in Asia. Interviews will be conducted only if needed.
  • The IP rankings will be separated into two tables: “Patent” and “Trademark/Copyright”. The rankings will also be divided into tiers, with the first tier identifying the strongest IP firms in each jurisdiction.
  • The rankings will cover the following jurisdictions: China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. There will be no Asia-wide table.
  • The rankings will feature both domestic and international firms. The following jurisdictions will have separate tables for domestic firms and international firms: China, Japan and South Korea.

Our research does not cover Australia and New Zealand.
