IAM Strategy 300: The World’s Leading IP Strategists 2022

Saiful Khan, Fiona Law and Peter Finnie have again been recommended in the 2022 edition of IAM Strategy 300: The World’s Leading IP Strategists.

The IAM Strategy 300 is a hugely respected annual listing of the individuals who lead the way in the development and implementation of world-class IP value creation programmes. Since its inception, the IAM Strategy 300 guide has identified individuals who lead the way in helping IP owners develop and implement successful strategies to maximise the value of their portfolios.

While Saiful, Fiona and Peter are all rightly acknowledged for their wealth of technical skills in this year’s edition, it is interesting to note that alongside these plaudits there is also increasing mention of the strategic value they deliver for their clients.

Having spent 20 years in-house and in private practice Saiful has worked with large multinational corporations, small and medium-sized enterprises and individual inventors.

Saiful is a described as being an experienced attorney who is “knowledgeable, talented and persuasive” and “adept at devising and implementing global patent strategies” and an attorney whose work has been “used in successful global patent licensing discussions”.

Saiful is also recognised for his tireless work to improve diversity and inclusion within the profession through his position on the board of IP Inclusive.

Fiona is recognised for her extensive expertise in pharmaceutical life cycle management and her ability to obtain supplementary protection certificates, patent term extensions, patents for repurposed drugs and second medical use patents.

She is also applauded for her “extensive experience in developing and implementing IP strategies that are aligned with commercial objectives” and for the way she has “guided clients in the pharmaceutical industries through multiple fundraising rounds and partnering successes”.

However, Fiona is also praised for developing her practice far beyond the pharmaceutical sector by applying her razor-sharp focus on commercial strategy across many industry sectors and across businesses of varying sizes.

Peter is described as a “first-class patent attorney” who “makes magic happen” and as an attorney with “considerable experience before the UKIPO and EPO handling complex cases relating to the protection of computer-implemented inventions”.

However, he is also recognised for his ability to create “robust foundational IP strategies that promote fast business growth”, ensure his clients “get the perfect deal” and make sure his clients’ IP “plays the part that it should within both business planning and fund raising”.

Alongside the individual recognition for the international reputations Saiful, Fiona and Peter continue to build as leading IP strategists, Fiona and Peter have continued to use their strategic expertise to develop Potter Clarkson’s unique suite of IP consultancy products.

These products make it as easy as possible for both technology-driven companies of all sizes and at all stages and investors to access the highest quality strategic advice. 

Our products give us the perfect platform from which to tailor, package and deliver everything our clients need to ensure their businesses or investments maximise their long-term financial value by using IP in the most commercial, cost-effective and risk-free way.
