BOSTON, June 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TechInsights, the preeminent provider of sophisticated intellectual property consulting services, announced today that two of their senior executives have been named to the IAM Strategy 300. The IAM Strategy 300 is a list of the World's Leading IP Strategists and includes individuals whose key skillset is working with IP owners to help them maximize the value of their patents, copyrights, trademarks and other rights.
For many technology companies, a significant portion of their value resides within their intangible assets. Patents, for example, have become an important source of revenue and competitive differentiation for many companies and a key metric for corporate valuation. The challenge is to effectively align this asset with the business objectives in order to derive optimal value. TechInsights' team of IP Professionals with their extensive technology background combined with our proven methodology helps clients to maximize this investment.
"IAM researchers spoke to a wide range of leading IP professionals in order to identify people to be considered as world-class IP strategists. Only those individuals considered and nominated by their peers to be an outstanding IP strategist are listed in the IAM Strategy 300" says Joff Wild, IAM editor.
Mike McLean, with twenty years of engineering and intellectual property rights management experience, is part of an exclusive group having been recognized in IAM's list of the World's Leading IP Strategists every year since it began. This is the second year in a row for Art Monk who has over 30 years of high-tech product and executive management experience and is a leader in portfolio analytics and brokerage.
"We are thrilled that two of our executives have been recognized for their accomplishments and named to the IAM Strategy 300 list." said Joel Martin, SVP TechInsights. "They are indicative of the experts at TechInsights that some of the largest patent holders in the world trust to deliver the most complete range of IP consulting services at each stage of the IP Lifecycle, from market intelligence to evidence of use to patent monetization".
