Organisational IP Consulting

Unique selling point

From '03 to '09 I was a Director of IP at Nokia. I was the leader of Nokia's Patent Creation team and during this time period I successfully managed a number of major change projects. As well as being responsible for the creation of new patents, my team also had responsibility for 3rd party patent risk mitigation, IP Agent network management, and IP processes, systems and tools.

I have been a member of the Executive Board of the Eco Patent Commons initiative as well as Chair of the CPA Global Memotech IUG.

I have written one book called “Inside the Patent Factory”, and I have another book due out in 2011, on the subject of collaborative innovation and IP.

I am an Adjunct Professor at Imperial College Business School, London.
