Robert will be speaking at the Annual Meeting of the Association of Intellectual Property Firms (AIPF) in Chicago September 18-20. AIPF is an international association of independent specialty law firms that devote a majority of their practice to patent law, trademark law and copyright law.

The theme of this year’s event, “Enhancing IP Rights in a Time of Erosion” is highly relevant in the New Zealand context. It will feature a number of esteemed speakers from around the world, including other specialist IP firms as well as leading corporations Whirlpool Corporation and Pioneer Hi-Bred International.

CreateIP also recently appeared in Corporate INTL, a leading monthly magazine for business leaders and professional advisors around the world.  The magazine featured a story on the AIPF and it’s goal of showcasing the clear business advantage that is realised by retaining a boutique intellectual property firm.  Download the feature.
