FICPI: helping you navigate the new normal

At times such as these it is good to have the support of the FICPI family and community.

Independent IP attorneys are having to learn new ways of working, problem-solving and connecting under the restrictions and ramifications resulting from the spread of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. FICPI is here to help.

On this page, we bring together a suite of resources and information to help members of our global community to adapt to the new paradigm, which brings opportunities for growth as well as some immediate challenges.

Connections and Member Engagements

Connections and Member Engagements

We will offer online meet-ups to replace at least some of the personal interactions and social stimulation that are lost with mandated social isolation, and we have gathered links to sources of advice around mental health and wellbeing under lockdown.

Resources for National Assocations & Sections

We are making FICPI's IT platforms and resources available to our National and Regional Associations and Sections who can then use tools such as Zoom to organise online meetings and Webinato to organise new webinars or to move in-person events online.
