Rising inflation coupled with tight labor markets are creating a perfect storm for all business and law firms are no exception, and neither are Intellectual Property firms. Even though many IP firms, particularly patent firms, pay a substantial premium for new and lateral hires when compared with the broader legal market, IP firms still must compete with the prevailing view that the grass is greener elsewhere, that another firm will offer the right mix of salary and quality of life.  

Balancing the needs of the firm with the needs of employees has never been more important. The pandemic forced IP practices to pivot to remote work and adopt new tools to support virtual collaboration among attorneys, staff, and clients. But now as we move into a post-pandemic world where many employees believe they have been just as productive from home and do not want to go back to the office.

The “great resignation” is refining not only how firms allocate resources, but how they stay competitive with prospective talent while balancing the “new normal”, whatever that ultimately winds up being.

Join

  • The great resignation: What it is and why it is affecting IP law firms?
  • What are emerging best practices within IP law firm staffing and service models?
  • Should operational efficiencies and cost savings come at the expense of values and culture?
  • Can shifts from traditional models successfully attract a younger workforce who is looking for a different work experience?
  • Achieving balance: How to identify higher-value activities and direct resources accordingly while experiencing sometimes sudden staffing shortages?
