Intellectual Asset Management (IAM) magazine has recognised Keystone Law solicitors Robert Pocknell and Simon Chalkley as two of the top 300 world-class intellectual property (IP) strategists in its annual guide IAM Strategy 300 2020: The World’s Leading IP Strategists.

IAM Strategy 300 identifies individuals leading the way in the development and implementation of strategies that maximise the value of IP portfolios. The guide is based on nominations from people outside of the nominee’s organisation, as well as additional research and an extensive vetting process by the IAM research team.

Robert is an IP law specialist and has gained significant experience advising clients of all sizes, from start-up entrepreneurs to multinational companies, on the licensing of IP rights and the creation, execution and implementation of IP strategies, particularly in the music, media and telecoms sectors.

Simon is an IP and commercial lawyer with almost 30 years’ experience advising brand, creative and technology-driven businesses on IP law, strategy, transactions and IP contract disputes. He is a recognised expert in transactions relating to the commercial exploitation of all IP rights including licensing, distribution (including selective distribution), franchising and technology transfer agreements.

Keystone’s intellectual property lawyers combine an unshakeable grasp on the specific technicalities of IP law with the business awareness and astuteness necessary to maximise clients’ assets in a worldwide market which has never been more competitive. From start-ups to large corporates, businesses rely on Keystone to advise on the development, protection and enforcement of their IP rights and, in turn, enjoy the commercial benefits of our clear and cost-effective solutions.
