Welcome to IAM Global Leaders, our annual opportunity to showcase conversations with some of the world’s top private practice experts in the field of patents. This year we sat down with 43 professionals to ask them about their distinguished careers, as well as some of the most pressing patent issues of the day.
To qualify for inclusion in the IAM Global Leaders, individuals must be ranked in the gold tier of the IAM Patent 1000, the market-leading annual directory that identifies the top law and attorney firms and individuals in the world’s most significant patent jurisdictions.
This in itself is no small feat. Our full-time research team goes through an exhaustive process to compile the IAM Patent 1000, gathering hundreds of written submissions from firms detailing their recent activities, conducting hundreds of faceto- face and telephone interviews, and corresponding, over a four-month period, with patent lawyers, attorneys and their clients. The resulting detailed data forms the basis of the rankings published in the directory.
From that esteemed group, we select candidates for the IAM Global Leaders who merit special attention – not only because of their expertise and experience related to creating, protecting, managing, transacting and enforcing critical patent rights, but also for their ability to innovate, inspire and go above and beyond to deliver value for their clients.
We would like to thank all of those who chose to participate for sharing their insights with the broader patent community, which we know will be enriched by these contributions.
