They explored why and how firms are taking stock their IP prosecution operational landscape — identifying challenges, opportunities and strategies for:
- Improving client service
Boosting lawyer productivity and satisfaction
- Identifying, measuring and analyzing key metrics
- Evaluating staffing models and surfacing approaches to enhance staff efficiency
And they shared lessons learned about securing management buy-in — both for conducting these exercises in the first place, and for investing in change based on the recommendations they reveal.
