As a global leader in intellectual property matters, IAM Media creates an annual list of standouts in the intellectual property sector. The IAM Strategy 300 list seeks to highlight industry trailblazers who have expertise in managing intellectual property as a business asset, which is consistent with IAM’s belief that IP assets are “significant enhancers of business value.” For the fourth consecutive year, Dr. Ghobad Heidari, founder and president of GHB Intellect, was selected to the IAM Strategy 300.
Those included in the final list are known for offering top-tier services that enable IP owners to maximize their portfolio values. These are individuals who are known for leading the way regarding the development and usage of strategies that drastically increase portfolio worth. The list cites individuals of all different backgrounds, including service providers, research institutions, corporations, and universities.
The nominees are identified through confidential endorsements online, as well as face-to-face meetings, email exchanges, and telephone interviews. The only way to make the list is to receive nominations from at least three people from outside his or her organization. However, this does not ensure inclusion in the IAM Strategy 300. In order to make the final cut, the individuals are researched and proven to have extensive skill sets, as well as “profound insights into the development, creation, and management of IP value”. Each year, IAM’s research team works with senior corporate IP managers across the planet to hand-select IP industry advisors they believe are qualified to be a part of the list.
The overwhelming majority of nominees do not make it through the vetting process to become an award winner. This procedure is typically applied very strictly, with the intention of making the list of award winners as credible as possible.
As mentioned, one of those recently named to the IAM Strategy 300 list is Dr. Ghobad Heidari, founder and president of GHB Intellect. Founded based on decades of experience from industry veterans, GHB Intellect now employs hundreds of expert professionals with specializations in many technology, finance and science areas. Our full-service IP consulting and engineering services firm is managed by these strong advisory teams.
IAM aims to provide global coverage of the IP value creation environment and has acknowledged that Dr. Ghobad Heidari and his team most certainly have what it takes to qualify. The IAM Strategy 300 is centered around men and women who have world-class qualifications in the development and execution of techniques that maximize individual patent value, trademarks, copyrights, and other types of IP. Dr. Ghobad Heidari is honored to be a part of this select group.
GHB Intellect’s founder has made it his mission to provide the highest-quality services to clients all around the globe. Over the past thirteen years, Dr. Ghobad Heidari and his team have offered IP strategy development, portfolio management, patent mining, infringement and validity analyses, reverse engineering, valuation, monetization support, and litigation support.
IAM wrote in their testimonial of Dr. Ghobad Heidari and his work, that as “An invaluable resource in terms of the technical support necessary to undertake high-level IP monetization, Ghobad Heidari offers a first-rate service. Insightful, efficient, incredibly bright, tireless and trend-aware, he’s a patent powerhouse and go-to strategist.”
A few of his personal areas of expertise include wireless and wired communication systems/networks, consumer electronics, semiconductors, and embedded systems. Before he created GHB Intellect back in 2007, he served in different senior/executive roles at AT&T, Nokia, and Olympus Corp. He also worked on various types of start-ups, which involved the design, research, and development of new standardized communication systems.
Dr. Ghobad Heidari has proven his strategic intellectual property ability time and time again, with more than 30 granted patents, published papers, and a PhD in electrical engineering from Purdue University. According to IAM, he is an invaluable resource regarding technical support, unparalleled service, and insightful ideas.
Once again, congratulations to Dr. Ghobad Heidari, who is incredibly well-deserving of the IAM Strategy 300 placement. He has spent many years honing his craft and has set a remarkable precedent for aspiring IP strategists to follow. Yet, he remains open to connecting on all things IP-related.
