IP practices face unique
IP is a technically difficult environment with complex rules and slim margins for error. At the same time, it is a high-volume transactional practice with hundreds, or thousands, of active matters to keep track of at any given time.
It takes an equally complex web of professionals to support an IP practice. Processes must be followed consistently, and safety nets established to ensure errors are caught before they cost a client their rights. In addition to mitigating risks, the survival of any IP practice today depends on maintaining high service levels for clients while managing costs effectively.
This has never been easy. But many firms have encountered even greater challenges in recent years maintaining these safety nets, while still managing costs and providing consistently great client service.
