It is fantastic news that P2i has come top in the 2020 Intellectual Property League Table (IP100 League) in results just announced by leading commercial IP consulting firm, Metis Partners. It is the fourth consecutive year that P2i has been listed in the IP100 League rankings. We’ve been runner-up in the past two, so it’s great to go one better this time.
In addition, as Metis Partners acknowledged, our “outstanding IP strategy and IP management resulted in [us] achieving Top 3 positions in three of the five IP asset categories this year.“ We claimed first place in the Best in Patents IP Asset Class category, which recognised that we had bolstered our patent portfolio over the past 12 months.
P2i also made the top five in four other categories. We were placed second in the Best in Critical Database IP Asset Class, in recognition of our use of proprietary product and chemistry databases to support our revenue streams; and ranked third in the Best in Trade Secret IP Asset Class. Further underlining how broad-reaching our success has been in this year’s awards, we also finished fourth in the Brand and Reputation class and fifth in the Software IP Asset table.
