    Program Description

    Recent developments in the US, the UK and other countries have overturned long established approaches on a range of issues, including potentially the approach to countries seeking international harmonization on IP laws and procedures. Whether the current period represents merely a pause or the beginning of a retreat in that approach is unclear. Either way, IP Law and Patent Attorney firms remain tasked with serving a client base that demands greater value at a lower cost and in shorter time frames. Digital strategies and new ways of working represent opportunities and threats for firms to meet these demands.  The 2017 AIPF Annual Meeting will provide an opportunity for attendees to reflect on the issues buffeting the IP system and learn how some firms around the world are responding.
