Colin has an outstanding track record for generating substantial revenues from Intellectual Property enabling ClearViewIP to create tangible value for our clients. He has been recognized as an IAM 300 leading IP strategist and currently serves as the President-elect for LES B&I.
Working with clients to help them identify value in their technology and IP is one of Colin’s favourite activities. It enables him to use his experience of Technology Transfer and patent litigation to accurately assess how the value can be realised. Having identified the value, he has a flexible approach for working with clients; from doing it all for them, to training and coaching their own staff to achieve success in this difficult field.
