There are no exit options for IP lit, except for MOAR LITIGATION (usually at a smaller firm that doesn't do IP lit at all), and that's if you're lucky. A lot of biglaw and boutique IP lit associates end up leaving law. The ones with tech backgrounds can usually find something somewhere (small firm or in house job), but the others are usually fukt (just like most lit associates).

How are the exit options for IP litigation associates who also have some licensing/transaction experience? Any better than those who do straight IP lit? I'm hoping to work in both practice groups.


For every 1 IP litigation in house posting there are 20-30 looking for prosecution/licensing/transnational experience. IP lit is not a long term career for most of the people who start out in it.
