The IP strategy of the agency changed, resulting in a significant increase in patent and licensing work.
Because the hiring process at the agency takes three or more months, the law department needed interim assistance to keep up with the new demands for IP legal support.
Epiq Counsel is a cost-effective, flexible solution that enables a law department to increase its
capacity on an interim basis, either until the law department's work returns to normal levels and/or
the in-house department is able to make permanent hires.
The client engaged an Epiq Counsel team of two patent lawyers and one paralegal, all of whom
had law firm training and prior in-house experience. The Epiq Counsel team was fully integrated
with the agency’s law department and business team. Once permanent hires are made by the
agency’s law department, the Epiq Counsel team will train and transition work to the new in-
house legal team members.
