Much has been written about how difficult it is for women who practice in the field of intellectual property and, in particular, why the growth trend for women attorneys in this area has not evolved as quickly as in other industries.
I have a different viewpoint. I truly believe that women can make it in IP, with many success stories about the women who already have done so. Some of the best lawyers I know are women, and many of them are either at technology companies or at law firms that do a considerable amount of IP work. The life sciences practice area, for example, is dominated by women. My views on this subject are based on my personal opinion, my experiences working at more law firms (and in different geographic locations) than I would like to admit and in my role as president of the Women’s Intellectual Property Lawyers Association.
