IAM Recognizes Graham Bell, Director of Cubicibuc, as one of the World’s Foremost IP Strategists
London (20 August 2020) – The world’s pre-eminent IP strategists have been named in the latest edition of IAM Strategy 300: The World’s Leading IP Strategists, published online by IAM and free to access. The unique guide lists the individuals that in-depth research, undertaken by a team based in London, Washington DC and Hong Kong, has shown to possess world-class skills in the development and roll-out of strategies that maximise the value of patents, copyright, trademarks and other IP rights.
The IAM research team spoke to a wide range of senior corporate IP managers in North America, Europe and Asia, as well as third-party IP service providers, in order to identify these IP leaders: men and women whose business is the creation, development and deployment of strategies that enable IP owners to gain maximum value from their portfolios. Only those individuals nominated multiple times by different parties as outstanding IP strategists are listed in the IAM Strategy 300.
For the sixth year, Cubicibuc’s Director, Mr Graham Bell has been named in the IAM Strategy 300 – The World’s Leading IP Strategists. Graham has extensive international experience advising clients in the development, application and exploitation of technology with a core focus in telecommunications and consumer electronics. Graham advises clients on IP strategy, patent acquisitions and licensing, including issues around FRAND licensing commitments in standards-based technologies.
Graham has spent a significant amount of time working with international organisations in Japan, China, Taiwan and Silicon Valley – helping them untangle issues around IP and particularly the ownership and exploitation of standards essential patents (SEPs).
Graham is also an Industrial Fellow with the Innovation and IP Management (IIPM) group within the Institute for Manufacturing (IfM) at the University of Cambridge. Graham is involved in the development of IP Strategy toolsets to enable businesses to build effective IP strategies. Having a proactive IP Strategy tightly aligned with organisational goals is key to maximising the value created in IP-centric businesses and is a crucial element to an organisations’ ability to sustain innovation.
“Intellectual property helps to drive the 21st century economy, creating strong incentives to invest in the creation and roll-out of brands and all types of content, as well as the innovation process. This makes IP strategists more important than they have ever been before. Their ability to create significant value makes them indispensable, wherever in the world they operate,” says IAM editor Joff Wild. “Since it was launched, the IAM Strategy 300 has become the go-to guide for those seeking to find out who leads the way when it comes to IP strategy. We invest considerable time and effort into identifying the right candidates for inclusion and we salute all those who have made it into the final publication. For the work they do, they deserve this recognition.” The IAM Strategy 300 is available in printed format and online at https://www.iammedia.com/directories/strategy300.
