I was delighted to represent Managing IP at a special event organised by the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys (CIPA) for its member firms. The event, which is designed for marketing/business development professionals, was hosted at CIPA’s office in London on November 26 2019. 

The event is a unique platform where marketing/business development professionals in IP firms can share ideas or concerns and learn from each other as well as gain insights from other professionals.

I understand this was the first time legal directories and awards featured on the agenda (it was included due to popular demand). I hope this conversation continues next year, with or without Managing IP’s participation.

The legal industry and publishing industry are both experiencing big changes, especially due to technology and consumer behaviour. I hope to write a summary of what I said at the event and other thoughts on this topic.
