Potter Clarkson patent attorneys recognised among world's top IP value creators by IAM

Fiona Stevens, Saiful Khan and Peter Finnie have each been recommended in the 2020 edition of IAM Strategy 300: The World’s Leading IP Strategists, a respected annual listing of 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.

In this year’s edition, Fiona Stevens is recommended as a “godsend” for UK life sciences and chemical companies” who is “brilliant at dissecting clients’ IP positions and eliminates portfolio weaknesses while enhancing strengths and bringing coherent strategies into sharp focus.”

Saiful Khan is described as an “exceptionally insightful patent attorney who is technically adept and commercially focused and can be relied upon to unpack complex patent problems and solve them creatively and practically.”

Peter Finnie is recommended as “an exemplary patent attorney” who is “a beacon for start-ups when it comes to setting foundational IP strategies. He understands not just how IP works in business and financing contexts but how to create practical tools that enable the achievement of business goals.”

Each of the world-class IP strategists cited in the listings are identified through confidential nominations, alongside an extensive research process involving face-to-face interviews and dialogue with senior members of the global IP community. No individual can qualify for a listing in the IAM Strategy 300 unless he or she is nominated by at least three people from outside of his or her own organisation.
