Encompass CorporationEncompass Corporation ranked ninth just two years after launching in Glasgow 

The UK’s leading Intellectual Property League table has ranked six Scottish based companies in the top 10 for the UK, including Encompass Corporation which launched in Glasgow in 2015.

The Intellectual Property League Table, which is sponsored by the Clydesdale and Yorkshire Bank, measures five Intellectual Property asset classes: Brand & Reputation, Patents, Critical Databases, Software and Trade Secrets. The assessment identifies companies that are using their Intellectual Property to create effective barriers to entry and the competitive advantages needed for growth and international expansion.

The other five Scottish companies listed in the top 10 are Glasgow based M Squared, Edinburgh Adrok PGM, Toshiba Medical Visualization Solutions and Aberdeen based Corex UK.

The top performing entrants are published in the IP100, an annual ranking of companies that are considered to be the most effective at commercialising their IP assets.

Wayne Johnson, CEO and Co-Founder of Encompass Corporation said; “The IP100 recognises UK private sector companies which have significantly invested in their Intellectual Property in terms of creation, management policies, research and development and commercialisation.

“Investing in your intellectual property is a cornerstone for any successful business, especially one that wants to operate across numerous markets and geographies. As such we are pleased to be recognised in the UK top 10, and delighted that Scottish companies dominate the list.”
