Please join us in congratulating Michele Katz on her nomination to the IAM Strategy 300 – The World’s Leading IP Strategists. The guide created by IAM Strategy identifies the individuals who are leading the way in the development and implementation of strategies that maximize the value of IP portfolios. The guide lists individuals from all kinds of entities – whether service providers, corporations, research institutions or universities. These world-class IP strategists are primarily identified through an extensive research process involving online nominations and face-to-face and telephone interviews, and email exchanges, 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 organization. But even this does not guarantee inclusion; instead, only those individuals who further research shows to have exceptional skill sets, as well as profound insights into the development, creation and management of IP value, are featured in the IAM Strategy 300. Congrats, Michele!
