It is a pleasure to welcome you to the 2017 edition of IAM Strategy 300 – The World’s Leading IP Strategists, our annual listing of individuals who our research has revealed specialise in developing and rolling out world-class IP value creation programmes.Read more
IAM is the only media platform whose primary focus is on intellectual property as a business asset. Our strong conviction is that IP assets can and should be used to increase bottom-line returns and enhance shareholder value by, among other things, securing freedom to operate, facilitating collaborations and generating revenues.
We also believe that none of this is possible without considerable input from people who have a deep understanding of the ways in which intellectual property can most effectively be put to work. These world-class IP strategists do not see issues from just one perspective; instead, they view things in the round. It is this 360-degree perspective, combined with a demonstrable ability to deliver, which makes them stand out from the crowd.
From the very beginning, the IAM Strategy 300 has identified individuals who offer top-tier services relating to the development and implementation of strategies which enable IP owners to maximise the value of their portfolios. Until 2015, only third-party advisers were listed in the publication; but beginning in that year we extended our coverage to also include in-house corporate IP professionals – the people working on the front lines of IP value creation. In this way we have made the IAM Strategy 300 an even more invaluable, as well as much bigger, reference point.
All individuals who make the final cut, and who state that they wish to be included, are featured in the IAM Strategy 300 free of charge. Under no circumstances whatsoever is it possible to buy a place in the guide. However, all third-party advisers are offered the chance to publish an enhanced biography entry for a fee, while individuals from operating companies can take out a complimentary biography. Some decide to do so, while others decline. All enhanced biographies are edited into IAM house style – their content, however, is supplied directly by the individuals concerned.
All of the people featured in this guide were asked to identify which areas applied to them. However, there are not always easy fits. Therefore, please bear in mind that the categories are for guidance purposes only and are not intended to provide definitive information. If you wish to get a better understanding of what an individual in the IAM Strategy 300 does, it is strongly recommended that you contact that person directly.
