We are delighted to announce that Mr. Nguyen Duc Thang – our Deputy General Director, Partner, and Director of Patent Department – has recently been selected as an IP Star for 2023 by Managing Intellectual Property (MIP) Magazine. This marks his 10th consecutive year of receiving this prestigious award.
MIP is a renowned magazine that specializes in the field of intellectual property (IP). The magazine is highly regarded by companies and individuals who seek experienced IP practitioners to provide advice on all aspects of IP law. And, as recited on its website:
“The research for our rankings is conducted rigorously and impartially by our team of research analysts in London, New York, and Hong Kong. Each year, we request information from thousands of firms, IP practitioners and their clients through interviews, emails, and online surveys.
The individuals we normally select as IP Stars are senior practitioners who serve as partners or equivalents in their firms. We do not select non-partners or junior practitioners to be ranked as IP Stars, except in very special circumstances. After selecting the IP Stars, we assign at least one practice area rating, e.g. patent star, to reflect what we reasonably believe to be their main area(s) of expertise.
The 2023 IP Stars List is primarily based on the research information obtained in 2022 and other information available at the time the core research was completed (February 2023). Our research analysts regularly monitor firms and their practitioners throughout the year, and, therefore, Managing IP reserves the right to change any ranking and/or remove a firm or individual from our website at any time”.
With such a reliable ranking method, we are incredibly proud to have Mr. Thang recognized by MIP again and again, a testament to his commitment, dedication, and proficiency in the IP field. We have no doubt that he will continue to excel in his career and achieve even higher rankings and achievements in the future.
