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 sixth consecutive year, Dr. Ghobad Heidari, founder and president of GHB Intellect, was selected to the IAM Strategy 300. Chao Qi, Director, IP Management for GHB Intellect was also selected to the prestigious list.
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, of those recently named to the IAM Strategy 300 list is Dr. Ghobad Heidari, founder and president of GHB Intellect and Dr. Chao Qi, Director of IP for 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, Dr. Chao Qi, and the GHB Intellect 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 and Dr. Chao Qi are honored to be a part of this select group.
GHB Intellect has made it its mission to provide the highest-quality services to clients all around the globe. Over the past fifteen years, GHB Intellect has offered IP strategy development, portfolio management, patent mining, infringement and validity analyses, reverse engineering, valuation, monetization support, and litigation support.
Once again, congratulations to Dr. Ghobad Heidari and Dr. Chao Qi, who are incredibly well-deserving of the IAM Strategy 300 placement. They have spent many years honing their craft and have set a remarkable precedent for aspiring IP strategists to follow. Yet, they remain open to connecting on all things IP-related.
