What they're saying about
Quinn Pacific

“Ian Watson, the founder and president of Quinn Pacific, is recognized as an expert in selling technology and intellectual property, and loves doing it. With over 25 years' experience of selling and structuring deals in high tech, he has an incomparable network of relationships in major global operating companies at the C-suite level. These relationships allow Mr. Watson and Quinn Pacific to find the best buyers for major deals efficiently.”

“Visteon initially hired Quinn Pacific in 2012 as a patent broker for the sale of a significant
automotive-related patent portfolio. Due to the success of that sale, we have subsequently
used them on two additional sales. Our experience was very positive and we plan to continue
using their services. I am happy to recommend them as a patent broker...”

"Quinn Pacific is one of the most impressive and effective patent brokers with which Cypress
works to market and sell such patents, and is one of only two brokers Cypress regularly uses to
find buyers for its surplus IP assets...Quinn Pacific have sold a number portfolios for Cypress, every one of which achieved a sale price at or above initial expectations, and while achieving these impressive results have consistently conducted themselves in accordance with the very highest ethical standards.”

“I am happy to recommend Quinn Pacific and Mr. Ian Watson as an excellent IP broker for patent sales. Quinn Pacific successfully accomplished the tasks with respect to the patent sales of three portfolios, in the technology areas of LCD, OLED and Digital Imaging. We were fully satisfied with the deal prices and other conditions.”

“Ian Watson is a first-rate IP professional. Ian’s understanding of the IP business is
formidable and his connections to the right people at a multitude of companies is
phenomenal. He is thorough, meticulous, communicates extremely well, and keeps his
clients and prospects informed at all stages. We recommend Ian and Quinn Pacific
without reservation.”

“Quinn Pacific is one of our key brokers for IP sales. Their impressive network of IP Buyers, deep in-house analytical capabilities and strategic thinking mixed with common sense has given them a significant advantage in the market resulting in a 100% success rate over the last 3 years."

“Quinn Pacific was very diligent and effective in representing DuPont to potential buyers. We felt they had an excellent contact list of key people in companies who would have interest in our IP. They kept us well informed about their sales contacts and responses they had received and shared their plans for follow up. They were very persistent and diligent in following up on their leads, which helped us close the deal in a time effective manner. They consulted with us at every step of the negotiation.”

"Everyone I run across who is interested in Intellectual Property seems to know Ian Watson (of Quinn Pacific) and, even more interesting, they all have good things to say about him! He is the most connected person I have dealt with in my over 35 years in technology, formerly as CTO of Motorola and now VP of Technology at TE (Tyco)."

“These are not slick sales guys. These are detail-oriented professionals who know how to communicate with technical customers. It is evident why they have an excellent track record in patent sales: they simply do not give up. This persistence paid off in the sale of our patent portfolio.”

"Quinn Pacific is among the most hard-working and effective selling organizations I have worked with. The firm obviously has contacts throughout the world and is skilled in working with major corporate buyers.”

"I have known Quinn Pacific over many years. A company that creates opportunity with its superior global network of C-suite connections and delivers results through mutual value based relationships."

"I am constantly amazed at the boundless relationships Quinn Pacific has throughout the globe to be able to reach the "right" people at the best companies. They are incredibly hard working, honest and ethical beyond reproach, and creative, innovative and of course very successful in helping their partners monetize their IP in various ways - they are an incredible set of people!"

"Their sales process is very proactive and their relationships with display makers are both deep and broad with multiple contacts in each organization. Within one month of taking on the portfolio they had organized multiple meetings and phone calls at the CTO level."

“The sales process was smooth and they impressed me with their speed, their access to buyers in the entire display/video ecosystem and their knowledge of the evaluation processes used by these buyers. My "time to money" was less than six months.....I would definitely use their services again."


Quinn Pacific is specialized in selling high value portfolios that typically have 30+ patent families, multiple charted or chartable patents, and with German and Chinese family members.

Sadly, as a practical matter, we cannot broker single patent or single family portfolios.
