International law firm Brown Rudnick LLP is a proud sponsor of the IP100, an annual intellectual property league table produced by Metis Partners. The report recognizes the world’s leading companies investing in intellectual property.

Brown Rudnick Intellectual Property Partner Mark Lubbock, Corporate Partner Sarah Melaney, and Corporate Associate Max Binney are featured in the IP100 report. The IP league table assesses data linked to five critical IP asset classes — brand and reputation, patents, critical databases, software, and trade secrets.

Sarah Melaney, who leads the sponsorship with IP100 for the Firm, said, “Huge Congratulations to this year’s winners. It is amazing to see so many companies taking IP seriously. IP strategies are increasingly what investors look for in a business, in particular in those with technology at its heart. We are very pleased to join with Metis Partners in shining a light on the market-leading companies investing in IP.”

Mark Lubbock commented, “We are seeing an increase in businesses developing an IP strategy as a driver for investment as the IP itself is increasingly seen by investors as an asset. We are excited to partner with Metis in presenting this year’s IP100, which highlights the importance of IP in contributing to the growth of business and the UK economy.”

From offices in Europe and the United States, Brown Rudnick’s Corporate and Intellectual Property Practice Groups advise businesses on implementing IP strategies at all stages of development, including start-ups, emerging growth companies, multinational public companies, and large institutional private businesses. The Firm also represents and works closely with the investment banking community, private equity, venture capital, and hedge funds. Brown Rudnick’s corporate lawyers have deep transactional and regulatory experience covering an array of industries.

The IP100 and IP League Table were founded by Metis Partners in 2015 and are one of the UK’s fastest-growing platforms for scalable IP-rich companies seeking investment. Read the complete IP100 report.
