Jackie Maguire
Coller IP Management

Jackie is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Coller IP Management Limited, which provides a full range of specialist Intellectual Property (IP) services. These services help organisations to manage and drive innovation, through to delivering the more formal aspects of commercial IP management: from patent and trade mark filing to brokering, licensing, valuation and legal opinion. Jackie has just been voted into the top 250 Global IP Strategists for the second year running and works with a range of board room clients to help them determine where intellectual capital is valuable in their business. Using appropriate models and techniques, she helps clients to turn intellectual capital into a valuable asset, to develop strategies for legal protection and to develop robust IP portfolios.

Jackie is a physicist and chartered engineer by background. She has taken new services to market, launched businesses and been responsible for the design and management of several multimillion-pound collaborative government-industryuniversity technology transfer programmes. She uses her director-level experience in operations, marketing and business development, together with 18 years' technology transfer, commercialisation and consultancy experience, to advise clients on how to realise value from their investments and other intangible assets.

In 2004, as a managing partner of IP solutions within Accentus plc, Dr Maguire laid the foundations for Coller IP Management Ltd, helping companies to recognise the importance of valuing, protecting and commercialising innovation within a business. She has now defined, grown and led Coller IP Management to deliver strategic intellectual capital commercialisation consultancy services to public and private sector clients.

Dr Maguire is an enthusiastic speaker and workshop facilitator and together with her business partner has developed proprietary methodologies in support of clients seeking to realise value from innovation.
