Press release: IAM’s Global Top 250 IP Strategists award for 2011


The World’s Leading IP Strategists Revealed


London (9th June 2011) – A unique publication identifying individuals whose key skill-set is working with intellectual property (IP) owners to help them maximize the value of their IP is launched today. Now in its fourth year, the IAM Strategy 250: the World’s Leading IP Strategists is acknowledged as the pre-eminent reference source for those seeking world-class strategic advice on IP.

Over the course of five months, IAM researchers spoke to a wide-range of leading IP professionals in order to identify people considered to be world-class IP strategists: men and women whose business is the creation, development and deployment of strategies that enable IP rights owners to gain maximum value from their portfolios. Only those individuals considered and nominated by their peers to be outstanding IP strategists are listed in the IAM Strategy 250.

At a time of huge economic and financial uncertainty, IP has never been more important. A growing number of companies are seeking to leverage their IP portfolios to extract maximum value from them; whether this be in the form of increased licensing revenues, improved alignment with overall business goals, more focused internal R&D, enhanced collaboration and more open innovation programs, or better marketing returns. In order to do this as effectively as possible, they need the advice of people who know the business of intellectual property inside out, as well as the opportunities that it presents. This is where the IAM Strategy 250 comes in.

“Locating people able to offer top class advice on maximizing IP value can be hard,” says Joff Wild, the editor of IAM. “Many people call themselves IP strategists, but far fewer have a track record of helping to devise and implement successful IP strategies. Those featured in the IAM Strategy 250 really do have the skill-sets and the experience. They would not be listed if they didn’t.”
