News  \  21 Jun 2017

We’re delighted to announce that AJ Park partners Anton Blijlevens, Anton Gibson and Mark Hargreaves have been named world-leading IP strategists in the 2017 IAM Strategy 300 - The World’s Leading IP Strategists. This unique publication is an ‘annual listing of individuals with an established track record in developing and rolling out world-class IP value creation programmes’.

An authority on global IP leaders, IAM conducts in-depth research across North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific region to produce the list, which is limited to 300 individuals worldwide. This extensive research process involves face-to-face and telephone interviews, as well as email exchanges, with senior members of the global IP community. Those who appear on the list are regarded as ‘best-in-class’ when it comes to helping business and IP owners gain maximum value from their intellectual assets.

IAM’s editor, Joff Wild, said ‘These world-class IP strategists do not see intellectual property from just one perspective; instead, they view it in the round. It is this 360-degree perspective on how IP management and value creation should align with overall business strategy that makes them stand out from the crowd.’

AJ Park’s chief executive Pete Boyle, said ‘We operate in a global environment that is increasingly competitive and never has it been more vital than now to stand out from the crowd. We congratulate Anton Blijlevens, Mark Hargreaves and Anton Gibson for this outstanding achievement. This acknowledgement is testament to their exceptional skills and profound insights into the development, creation and management of IP value.’
