Go your own way

The world of IP and IT attracts more than its fair share of independent lawyers and sole practitioners. Experience and enjoyment of the topic area, intellectual curiosity and a desire to innovate tied, helpfully, with an understanding of the technology crucial to the success of start-ups and small businesses nowadays leads many IP and IT practitioners to go their own way. It's a path that presents unique challenges and opportunities, especially in the current economic climate.
