This past weekend, over 200 DLA Piper attorneys traveled to Schaumburg, Illinois for the Intellectual Property & Technology (IPT) Practice Group Conference (“Conference”). The Conference’s theme was “Celebration and Commitment.” This three-day event focused on networking across offices, celebrating the achievements of the IPT practice, and committing to goals to expand and improve the IPT practice in 2013.

The Conference consisted of sessions on alternative fee arrangements, business development, diversity and pro bono projects, social media brand building, and team building. Of course, the highlights of the Conference were the very humorous group commercials on the DLA Piper IPT brand and the entertaining Karaoke night. We look forward to next year’s Conference!
