The IP Lounge: SEPs update, IP hiring trends

MIP Podcast newsletter header banner sample-2000.jpg

In the latest episode of our monthly podcast, the team discusses standard-essential patent developments so far this year and delves into law firm hiring strategies


It’s been a busy start to the year for the Managing IP editorial team. In this episode, the first of 2024, the team looks back over the biggest talking points in January.

Deputy editor Max Walters is joined by Rani Mehta, senior reporter for the Americas, and Sukanya Sarkar, our senior reporter in Asia.

Top of the list is standard-essential patents (SEPs). There have been some notable settlements in the past few weeks. However, the EU’s proposed SEP Regulation is still looming large after a crucial vote in the European Parliament last month and another coming up at the end of the month. Sukanya provides a rundown.

Also in this episode, we take a close look at law firm strategy trends.

Rani delves into how some firms are responding to patenting trends and an expected increase in litigation by making key hires, while Sukanya looks at consolidated firms and tells us why some in-house counsel are wary of using their services.

We will be back with a new episode in March. Thank you for listening.
