About IAM Strategy 300: The World’s Leading IP Strategists
IAM Strategy 300: The World’s Leading IP Strategists is a unique guide lists the individuals that in-depth research, undertaken by a team based in London, Washington DC and Hong Kong, has shown to possess world-class skills in the development and roll-out of strategies that maximize the value of patents, copyright, trademarks and other IP rights.
The IAM research team spoke to a wide range of senior corporate IP managers in North America, Europe and Asia, as well as third-party IP service providers, in order to identify these IP leaders: men and women whose business is the creation, development and deployment of strategies that enable IP owners to gain maximum value from their portfolios. Only those individuals nominated multiple times by different parties as outstanding IP strategists are listed in the IAM Strategy 300.
Not only does the publication feature world-class, third-party IP advisers, but it also includes individuals that work inside operating companies. This reflects the growing importance that businesses across the world attach to having in-house IP value creation expertise, alongside the legal expertise that has traditionally characterized corporate IP functions. Notably, there is now an emerging group of senior IP business leaders that are not lawyers by training, but instead have backgrounds in other disciplines.
The third-party service providers featured also have a wide range of professional backgrounds and areas of specialization, including brokering, defensive patent aggregation, finance, insurance, management consultancy, law, licensing, mergers and acquisitions, tax and valuation. They are based in centers across the world. A number have been involved in IP-related transactions valued in the hundreds of millions, or even billions, of dollars; while others have advised clients on monetization strategies that have reaped eight, nine and 10-figure sums.
“Intellectual property helps to drive the 21st century economy, creating strong incentives to invest in the creation and roll-out of brands and all types of content, as well as the innovation process. This makes IP strategists more important than they have ever been before. Their ability to create significant value makes them indispensable, wherever in the world they operate,” says IAM editor Joff Wild. “Since it was launched, the IAM Strategy 300 has become the go-to guide for those seeking to find out who leads the way when it comes to IP strategy. We invest considerable time and effort into identifying the right candidates for inclusion and we salute all those who have made it into the final publication. For the work they do, they deserve this recognition.”
