IP professionals, there’s good news about outsourcing! Legal process outsourcing and business process outsourcing are playing an increasing role in the efficiency and profitability of IP practices in law firms and corporate legal departments. The rapid growth of multijurisdictional practice, globalization, technological advancements and recent changes to ethics rules warrant a fresh approach to achieving the greatest “net benefit” from outsourcing for your organization. Join us for this webinar that will assist you in evaluating, implementing and monitoring outsourcing initiatives to maximize your organization’s net benefits.
  • Identify outsourcing related risk to the firms: human assets, physical assets, financial assets, net income and intangible assets
  • Discuss terms and conditions in outsourcing contracts specific to IP practice that require “unique” consideration in negotiations.
  • Review strategies, policies and procedures to maximize “net benefits” of outsourcing
