Partner Jenny Colgate will moderate a discussion on "Mentoring IP Lawyers" during the Association of Intellectual Property Firms (AIPF) 2021 Annual Meeting taking place virtually September 23-24, 2021.
Jenny's session is scheduled to be held on Thursday, September 23 at 11:15 am ET.
The 2021 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.
