Kiwi IP strategist ranked alongside the world’s best

Kiwi IP strategist ranked alongside the world’s best for fourth consecutive year.

She’s done it again – James & Wells partner, Kate Wilson, has been named on the IP industry’s illustrious international list, the Intellectual Asset Management’s IAM Strategy 300.

The Hamilton-based owner is unique in her achievement – not only was she the first New Zealander to be included on the list back in 2010, Kate is also the only Kiwi to have been listed four years in a row.

Making the list is no small feat. Only 300 strategists from around the globe are included, and they must be nominated multiple times by different parties.

IAM researchers in the United States, Europe and Asia spoke to a wide range of senior corporate IP managers, as well as third-party IP service providers, in order to identify the IP leaders, whose business is the creation, development and deployment of strategies that enable IP owners to gain maximum value from
their portfolios.

“The IAM Strategy 300 recognises the achievements of a very select group of men and women whose advice has consistently helped companies across the world to generate significant extra value from their IP,” says IAM editor Joff Wild.

“Developments over recent years have shown the strategic importance of IP to businesses, so locating individuals who understand IP value and how to create it has never been more important. That is why we are so proud to publish the IAM Strategy 300: we know that the connections it helps to facilitate make a positive difference.”
