Raymond Millien, of the PCT Law Group, PLLC, compiled a directory of intermediaries for players in the U.S. patent marketplace. From private equity investors, to lenders…from auction houses to IP insurance advisors, the directory comes with names, phone numbers, and URLs. There are over 100 entries, including the main non-practicing entities. The directory is misnamed (“IP”), as it narrowly focuses on patents. Also, though the description is of the U.S. marketplace, the directory rightfully includes contact information at European houses that affect that marketplace.
