It is hard to believe it has been 12 months since announcing that ClearViewIP's Directors had scored a hat trick as acclaimed international IP strategists
, but we are pleased to announce that Managing Director Jon Calvert
and Commercialisation Director Colin Hunsley
have once again been recognised by the IAM 300 as leading intellectual property strategists - now for the fourth consecutive year!

releases their list of the Top 300 IP Strategists worldwide, anonymously nominated by their peers and reviewed by a panel of experts, assessing each individual's continuing contributions to IP strategy.

, a non-profit organisation dedicated to supporting and educating the IP strategy community.

across many organisations throughout his career, having previously been Chairman of the Medical Engineering Division of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers
and having engaged in a number of speaking positions for organisations including Shanghai International Property Forum, The Patent Office of The Republic of Poland
, Kaplan Hawkesmere, CIPA, PraxisUnico and IEEPI.
It has certainly been a great month for Colin, who has also just been elected as Vice President of the Licensing Executives Society for Britain & Ireland

With both Jon and Colin's ongoing contributions to IP strategy on a global scale, it is rewarding to see them once again publically recognised by their fellows.
