Hyperion Global Partners, a premier business and technology consulting practice to the legal profession, today announces Ralph Schroeder, managing director, Hyperion Research, will be participating in a keynote presentation titled “Going Paperless: Building the Next Generation IP Management System” at the ALA’s 2013 IP Conference for Legal Professionals. The event is taking place September 19-20 at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, MD.
Chris Sale, M.A., general manager of Lowe Hauptman & Ham, LLP in northern Virginia, will be presenting with Schroeder. The presentation will discuss the challenges and leading trends in going paperless, including implications for docketing processes, attorney use, client collaboration, the Cloud and electronic interfaces to the PTOs. It will:
• Identify the current state of adoption for paperless IP management;
• Discuss the biggest challenges facing the move from a paper-based to a paperless process;
• Determine some of the leading systems that are currently being used by law firms and corporate IP groups;
• Examine the guiding principles in selecting and implementing a paperless process.
“The ALA IP Conference is a seminal gathering of IP operations managers, and I’m excited for the opportunity to address this important crowd on how to seize the value in a digital-based IPM practice,” stated Schroeder. “Intellectual property practice management has become increasingly complex and sophisticated, and the reliance on traditional "paper-based" processes has become a defining issue. This is the right time to be discussing these challenges and I look forward to a great conversation about the leading trends and creating higher value work product.”
The session will be 90 minutes in length and will include an open forum discussion between the audience and the speakers. Attendees should have a working knowledge of technology applications in intellectual property practice management.
