Intellectual Property

Intellectual property underpins many of the most important motors of the 21st century global economy. The way patents and other IP assets are deployed can have a significant impact on their owners’ competitive positions, their profitability and shareholder returns.

IAM is the leading ​global platform focusing on ​IP value creation and IP as a key business asset. It is the trusted source for news, analysis and data primarily for IP corporate leaders, offering daily coverage of breaking stories, as well as in-depth reports on issues that have an impact on the creation of IP value within and across sectors. It dives into key datasets to offer unique insights and forward-looking analysis on emerging trends.

Docket Navigator is the world’s most comprehensive intelligence platform covering the key US patent litigation market. Every suit at every federal district court is hand-coded with up to 29 different data fields, creating a detailed, accurate and comprehensive picture of all cases wherever in the US they are filed. In this way, both rights holders and practitioners can stay up to date, monitor business opportunities and improve strategic outcomes.

IPBC is acknowledged as the world’s pre-eminent IP business event, attracting high-level delegates from industry, finance and investment, the law, academia and government, as well as IP intermediaries and aggregators. Together with other IAM events, they bring together senior decision-makers to discuss cutting-edge IP value creation, policy and strategy issues to ensure high-level and effective networking, benchmarking and learning opportunities.

IAM’s proprietary data on law firm performance, gathered over two decades as part of our comprehensive research processes for the Patent 1000 and Strategy 300 guides, allows users to compare themselves against competitors and identify opportunities for growth.
