Welcome to the IP100, the UK’s first intellectual property (IP) league table, compiled by Metis Partners.

The IP100 is an annual ranking of companies based on a rating of their IP asset strength and track record in exploiting IP. The process involves an assessment of IP-specific data linked to the following IP asset classes: brands, software, patents, trade secrets and critical databases. The IP100 research team uses its proprietary process to calculate an IP score and subsequent ranking for each company.

The top scoring companies will be published in the IP100, an annual ranking of businesses which are considered to be the most effective at commercializing their IP assets.


The IP League Table has been great for Digitonic as it has been a fantastic differentiator, setting us apart as a real innovator in our market. It has really helped us raise our profile as a service provider who invests greatly in IP, for the benefit of our clients. Since it was announced we had ranked 8th overall we have noticed a significant increase in website traffic and LinkedIn views, which is always great for business.
