Sustainable profitability in IP firms

This session will introduce concepts, tools, and methods for sustainable profitability in fast-changing and disruptive legal markets, specifically relating to their applicability in intellectual property practice.

This will include an examination of how the economic forces and profitability drivers can vary significantly among intellectual property subspecialties within the same firm or practice group, with special impacts on pricing levels, structures, and strategies.

We will also investigate together a case study to demonstrate how to diagnose profitability issues and develop sustainable improvements in an intellectual property practice.
