by | Dec 18, 2023

We are delighted to announce that Pearce IP is ranked in the Chambers and Partners Guide for 2024 in the category of Intellectual Property.   Pearce IP’s Founder and CEO Naomi Pearce is also ranked in the 2024 guide in for Patents and for Life Sciences.

Chambers is “the world’s leading ranking and insights intelligence company” and identifies the very best legal talent across more than 200 jurisdictions.

Pearce IP is one of 24 firms ranked for IP, one of only two boutique firms, and the only life sciences focussed firm ranked.   Pearce IP is the only ranked firm in this category with a female founder and/or certified as women owned.

Naomi is one of 29 and 34 professionals ranked for Patents and Life Sciences respectively, in each instance, one of 9 and 15 women respectively honoured.  Naomi is the only female founder ranked in either of these categories.

Pearce IP’s Founder and CEO Naomi Pearce says:

“I am delighted to see Pearce IP joining the Chambers & Partners ranked 6 years after commencement of the firm.  This is a testament to the quality of work and service the Pearce IP team produces daily, and honours the Pearce IP talent and the commitment of its leaders. It is also significant that Pearce IP is one of only two Australian boutique firms, the only life sciences focussed firm, and the only firm in this category with a female founder and/or certified as women owned, ranked by Chambers.

I congratulate my colleagues and friends who are similarly ranked by Chambers, who are deserving of this great honour, and am proud to see Pearce IP take its rightful place with them.”
