MEMBERSHIP

WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN THE ASSOCIATION OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY FIRMS (AIPF)?

The Association of Intellectual Property Firms (AIPF) is an international association of independent specialty law firms which devote the majority of their practice to patent law, trademark law and copyright law. Memberships for AIPF are through law firms and not individuals, except in the case of the following:

  • Emeritus members (i.e. individual attorneys who have retired from member firms), and
  • Academic memberships for law professors, students, and others in the legal education community.

Membership provides access to programs specifically designed to develop, facilitate and implement initiatives that strengthen the capabilities of our members as practitioners and leaders of their firms. At the same time, we actively promote to corporations, industries, other professionals and law schools the clear business advantages of working with our membership.

BENEFITS TO MEMBER FIRMS AND INDIVIDUAL ATTORNEYS INCLUDE:

Access to the Association's external network: AIPF facilitates access to an international network of in-house IP and patent counsel, business owners and member attorneys.

Member-hosted and industry focused programs: Members develop programming and host webinars on subjects of high interest to in-house counsel, patent, trademark, copyright and licensing portfolio managers.

Access to the Association's website: An important resource with links to member firms, blogs, and updates focused on legal and business developments that affect the IP legal community.

Access to the Association's shared knowledge base: AIPF provides a forum for IP law firms to address issues that specifically relate to the practice and business of IP law, including:

  • Programs to enhance members' legal skills and industry knowledge,
  • Opportunities to exchange information about patent, trademark, copyright law and related topics with experts drawn from a global faculty,
  • Business management skills and resources,
  • Best practices and resources to improve operations and efficiency, management, technology, diversity, training, professional development, recruitment, retention and performance management, and
