SMALL FIRMS & SOLO PRACTITIONERS

LAIPLA meets the needs of our small firms and IP Solo Practitioners

Through our Small Firm Outreach Committee, we offer low or no cost events and luncheons that appeal to business and professional concerns of our colleagues and clients. We present and hold expert discussions on a wide range of topics including effective networking, law firm management, legal technology, business and ethical considerations of law firms and attorneys, and specific issues of interest to the IP community. In addition, we offer social happy hours, both in downtown and the West Side. We provide at least three-four MCLE and networking events a year for our diverse membership.
