IP Futures Panel Discussion and Networking Evening

Wednesday 1 November 2023
5.30 for 6 pm

– Rescheduled from July –


Attendees joined us for an evening discussing careers in IP with a panel discussion and networking session.

Interested in progressing your career in IP? Considering a role in-house or a move to private practice? Recently joined the profession and don’t know where your career is heading? This event was for you! We compared training in-house and in private practice. Our panellists offered their thoughts on general career progression in both routes. There was also an opportunity to network after the panel discussion with drinks and nibbles.

The event was organised by IP Futures, which is an IP Inclusive community specifically for early-career professionals in IP with up to 6 years of experience. You can read more about IP Futures here.

It was kindly hosted by Finnegan Europe LLP at their London Offices located at 1 London Bridge.

You can read a report of the event on the IP Futures LinkedIn page here.

Meet the Panellists

Our panel included professionals with a range of backgrounds in patents or trade marks from private practice and in-house positions.




This event was free and so are all our resources. We think it’s important to keep IP Inclusive on the right side of the paywall.

That said, we do need money to keep the show on the road, so if you enjoyed the event please consider contributing. For more information, visit the IP Inclusive fundraising page.
