The Report of the Economic Survey provides an in-depth report on the annual incomes and related professional characteristics of intellectual property attorneys and patent agents. Conducted every other year, the survey also examines the economic aspects of intellectual property law practice, including individual billing rates and typical charges for representative IP law services

New this year: The 2013 Report provides color graphs linked to detailed data profiles for the following six major practice types: Solo Practitioner; Private Firm, Partner/Shareholder; Private Firm, Associate; Head of Corporate IP Department; Attorney, Corporate IP Department, and Corporate and Private Patent Agents.

The Report also contains the costs in the different regions of the country for filing a patent application or registering a copyright or trademark.

    The name of the game is the claim. Claim drafting is one of the foundational skills of every patent practitioner focusing on patent prosecution. While building global patent portfolios becomes more and more important to client’s businesses nowadays, knowing the nuances between practices in different jurisdictions is a key to procuring quality patent protection. This webinar takes a comparative approach to discuss claim drafting from the perspective of European practices and US practices. We invite experts practicing in the respective regions to share their insights. The webinar is being jointly hosted by the IP Practice in Europe Committee and the Patent Agents Committee and comprises two meetings in series. Part I of this webinar, held on October 4th, 2023, will be centered on biology-related and chemistry-related fields covering claim scope and inventive steps, clarity vs. sufficiency, and eligible subject matters in these two regions. Part II of the webinar will be held on November 9th, 2023, focusing on software patents.
