The 2020 Annual Meeting will dive deep inside the workings of an IP boutique firm. How do firms determine who will make partner and how they are compensated? What are firms doing to ensure appropriate succession plans? What are the ethics regarding attorney moves and mergers? These and other front-of-mind, but rarely addressed, topics will be analyzed and discussed, as well as ethical and practical issues when working with and hiring foreign counsel and third-party vendors. The agenda will also feature relevant topics in IP law, and will be comprised of informative lectures, panel discussions, and interactive workshops.
The 2020 Annual Meeting offers excellent opportunities to engage partners, senior attorneys, and business decision-makers through our interactive programming and networking functions. Sponsorship is also an exceptional source for visibility to an active and diverse legal community dedicated to intellectual property law.
