Signs of Health in the IP Industry

The IP Industry is showing real signs of health. The Patent Attorney Job Board has a steady increase in job opportunities for patent / trade mark attorneys and IP Lawyers. The great thing with this is, the large percentage of new vacancies have been through growth rather than just replacement. This is a nice change from the downsizing which occurred a few years back. The main growth areas are ANZ, Singapore, Hong Kong, China, Middle East and the UK. We have found that firms are feeling more confident and generating more business requiring additional staff. Interestingly, we have had firms give preference to employing attorneys with out portable business as they have problems keeping up with their current volume of work. How things change.
