INTRODUCTION TO PLENARY 1
Which IP firm should you hire? A discussion from different perspectives:
In this session a panel including IP managers from companies, and representatives from IP firms, will discuss processes and criteria for selecting an IP firm to work with, and to evaluate its performance.
• How is a firm selected?
• How is its performance reviewed?
• What are the main criteria and how are they appreciated?
• Who is in charge of this process within the firm and how is it organised?
Part I: In-house attorneys
Industry representatives will share their perspectives and expose what they are looking for when they select an IP firm.
Part II: IP firm attorneys
Representatives from IP firms will do the same, explaining the main criteria and priorities for selecting a (foreign) IP firm to work with.

“FICPI’s 20th Open Forum offers a comprehensive technical programme for independent IP attorneys based around the world, whether specialising in patents or trade marks. We’ve devised a fun and engaging social programme to complement the technical agenda, with a sporting challenge, an IP-themed cocktail evening, quiz, and cheese-based cooking fun!"
