CEO Sangeeta Shah Panelist for Growth Mindset Panel with IPWatchdog

Team Contact: Sangeeta Shah


SOUTHFIELD, Mich. –Brooks Kushman CEO Sangeeta Shah will be a panelist at an upcoming IPWatchdog webinar titled, “Re-engineering IP Law Firms to Adopt a Growth Mindset” on November 4, 2021.

In this panel, law firm leaders will discuss how, although much of what IP Lawyers do can be facilitated and streamlined with technology, most law firms are not well prepared for widespread digital transformation. Panelists will discuss how, to address this problem, forward-thinking firms are placing their growth in the hands of Chief Executives who know the legal business but are adept at running and growing an increasingly agile enterprise that is required to deliver high-grade professional services. They will discuss how technology is the backbone to running their business and critical to their talent retention strategy, providing concrete steps that can be applied in other firms and examples of how technology can help streamline IP operations, provide visibility to law firm’s performance, and better connect IP data to create more accurate forecasts and budgets.

In addition to serving as the CEO, Sangeeta maintains an active docket as an IP practitioner with over 20 years of experience in managing patent portfolios, PTAB matters, patent litigation, and opinions. Sangeeta works closely with several Fortune 500 clients for whom she provides strategic counseling and guidance on global intellectual property portfolios.
