IP Professionals: Law Society Initiative

I have just seen an interesting post about Professional Bodies by Barbara Cookson on the IP Solo Practitioners’ blog which deserves as much publicity as it can get. The legal services industry is in for major changes once Part V of the Legal Services Act 2007 comes into force. 


Although most of my colleagues have yet to see it, specialist IP counsel have far more in common with excellent one person or small firms of patent agents like Filemot or indeed law firms like Pemberton Reid and James Love Legal or indeed Toni Tease in America than we do with the factory sets in Manchester or Liverpool or indeed they do with the mega law firms and rapidly expanding patent agents firms. That’s why I set up IP Yorkshire which Barbara understood and kindly blogged in An Alternative Business Model based on Quality.

About Jane Lambert

I am a barrister specializing in intellectual property, technology, media and entertainment and competition law. I specialize in helping SME (small and medium enterprises) protect and exploit their investment in brands, design, technology and the arts. SME require intellectual property (legal protection for their intellectual assets) at least as much as big business but their limited means restrict the way they can use it. Looking after such clients wisely requires skills and knowledge which have taken me years to learn.
