Is it easier to transition to in-house doing general IP lit or strictly patent lit?

It will depend upon the technology that the size of the company and what it specializes in as some are more heavily litigated than others. If the company is large enough to have an IP group, then you will likely be asked to focus on one or more areas. Smaller companies will likely need you to help with the front end (licensing, product marking, prosecution, etc.) and back end (defense activities, C&D, etc). If you have experience in strictly patent lit, then you should be expanding your expertise which will make you more marketable.

Sorry, but it depends. If you’re aiming to work at a company that has a large patent litigation docket, then specializing in patent litigation makes sense. Otherwise, a broader set of IP experiences will probably be more useful for the average company. Keep in mind that generally speaking, companies prefer to look for people who want to work in-house on “dispute resolution,” rather than money-sucking “litigation”.

Let’s pretend we’re holding companies. I’ll start: No, we can’t hire an extra writer even though you’re clocking 70+ hours a week. BTW, our contract with your client caps billable hours per employee because they know we don’t pay overtime. Here’s a non-billable code you should start using for the rest of the year.

All of my friends and seems like everyone around is looking for a job change as I see on a average, everyone is getting close to 100% hike in new company, is this just a bubble, because hiring and job is wfh, or this trend continue even next year once the physical offices open up? I'm going through a bad FOMO, seeing everyone change companies and getting double the pay. Tried giving interviews, but many rejected me just because of my 90days notice period. What should I do?

I’ve long disliked the term ethics. Definitions of ethics all refer to morals. Morals are very personal and vary a lot from person to person, culture to culture. Law is how we as a society express our preferences and impose rules and restrictions on ourselves. So the question should never be about whether companies can be ethical. What does that mean? One person thinks eating meat is unethical, another thinks it’s perfectly ethical. Companies should focus on complying with the law.

Hi! Anyone taken SHRM-CP exam recently and have any tips on studying or taking the exam? TIA.

I’d love some help thinking through this. I’m currently renting for $1600 base ($1800 total) and live in the least desirable part of town, and expect it to raise to about $2k/month. I was planning to buy my first property in the city and Airbnb part of it, but it will take me about a year to save up the cash (~$500k starting). Eventual goal is to move more rural but trying to build to FI. I found a property in my ideal dream location for $280k but it needs work, and can’t Airbnb it. Continued
