We are pleased to announce that Joakim Hammarsjö from AWA, Ai-Leen Lim from AWA Asia, and Thomas Ewing, Martin Jansson and Henrik Olsson from AWA Strategy have been identified by the IAM Strategy 300 in the 2019 edition of the World’s Leading IP Strategists.

The IAM Strategy 300 commented the following on each individual:

Joakim Hammarsjö – AWA

Few individuals in the Nordic region understand the business of intellectual property better than Joakim Hammarsjö – his senior management experience in two of Sweden’s leading companies grants him an exceptional level of insider knowledge.

Ai-Leen Lim – AWA Asia

Ai-Leen Lim “showcases exceptional commitment and a keen commercial sense” and is a go-to for the complex IP aspects of corporate transactions in Asia. Whatever you ask of her in an IP strategy context, “she never fails to deliver”.

Thomas Ewing – AWA Strategy

Renowned as “skilled, fast, accurate and easy to cooperate with”, Thomas Ewing is “a brilliant strategist”. “His depth of understanding and breadth of experience are a guiding light; his ability to find innovative, appropriate and cost-effective solutions unique.”

Martin Jansson – AWA Strategy

Jansson is “one of the few people who can develop, articulate and implement business-coherent IP strategy”. “He is a visionary, with a genuine business focus and the ability to predict the implications, value and effects of IP decisions.”

Henrik Olsson – AWA Strategy

Olsson “understands not just what an effective IP strategy looks like, but how to execute it”. “He interacts well with R&D managers to extract the right intellectual property and then builds valuable portfolios that align perfectly with clients’ commercial needs.”

The IAM Strategy 300 – The World’s Leading IP Strategists identifies the individuals who are leading the way in the development and implementation of strategies that maximise the value of IP portfolios. The IP strategists are primarily identified through an extensive research process involving online nominations and face-to-face and telephone interviews and email exchanges, with senior members of the global IP community. No individual can qualify for a listing in the IAM Strategy 300 unless he or she is nominated by at least three people from outside of his or her own organisation.
