A Secondment Can Help Grow Your IP Practice

Although your company may have an in-house IP attorney, your company may still need temporary help from an outside law firm to develop your company’s patent portfolio and to solve your company’s need for temporary help with minimal need for training and financial investment. If you do not have the budget to hire an in-house IP attorney, the solution is to try a secondment — an attorney from an outside law firm temporarily joins your in-house legal team as a “secondee” on a part-time or full-time basis.
