Exit options for IP?

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Sep 27, 2011 10:11 pm

Considering take a job at a V50 but I"ll be in the IP department for sure. I have a moderate science background and was hoping to go in-house one day in a health/life science company. Would IP work be helpful for that?

What other options would I have if I get into IP? Thanks

I have found that just about any background is good for trolling.

General litigation, probably more financial stuff.
The IP group mostly deals with technology and there is not much (if any) life science work. That's why I wonder if it would still be practical for in-house at a science company. I see most of the in-house positions at big life science companies like compliance/regulatory work.
