The search for the world's leading IP strategists is on

The research process for the 2020 edition of IAM Strategy 300 is underway and we want you to take part. More precisely, let us know who you consider to be a  world leading IP strategist by visiting our research website and filling in the form (click here).

Since 2009, the IAM Strategy 300 has served as an essential tool for those seeking to identify IP professionals – whether corporate, legal or advisory - who excel in the creation and roll-out of strategies designed to maximise the value of intellectual property. To ensure that the directory continues to give authoritative and up-to-the-minute guidance, we are once again asking the IP community to get involved in the nomination process.

We are seeking to identify candidates across the IP strategy spectrum – from private practice lawyers and corporate counsel, through aggregators and NPE executives, to economists, consultants and research institution professionals. If they have a proven track record of expertise in using intellectual property to boost bottom-line returns or by creating value in other ways, then we want to hear about them.

To be considered for inclusion in the guide, a candidate must receive a minimum of three nominations from outside the organisation in which they work. Those who reach this threshold will be added to our longlist. Longlisted individuals will then be contacted and asked to provide background information which they think supports their nomination. After reviewing this information, and the results of our own research, the IAM team will choose the individuals to be included in the IAM Strategy 300 2020.

Self-nominations and nominations from individuals working in the same organisation as the nominee will not be accepted.

If you would like to nominate individuals for potential inclusion in the IAM Strategy 300, please visit our nomination website. All participants who complete the survey will be entered into a prize draw and the winning entry will receive a complimentary ticket to any IAM event of their choice.

This nomination process closes on 30th December 2019. We look forward to receiving your suggestions. If, in the meantime, you have any questions about the research, please contact us at [email protected]

Please note that the guide will not automatically feature all professionals included in the previous year.
