There is a secret. A secret unlike others; which cannot simply be shared, or passed on. One which can only be fully known through years of exposure to its unusual world.
A world where perfection is the accepted minimum, delivered quietly and efficiently by masters of diligence and unsung heroes.
Those who experience their first exposure to this world are either frightened off forever, or permanently hooked; digging in for the long haul. It isn’t a job, and it isn’t a set of tasks. It’s a calling. It isn’t for everyone, but it is absolutely for some.
If you work in IP Formalities, and you love what you do, then you probably get it. Sometimes forgotten as the back-room trivia, we all know better. Modern, smart and progressive companies are starting to know better too. The most beautifully drafted patent in the world is nothing more than junk if it doesn’t get renewed, or the POA isn’t submitted on time, or…
It’s hard for you to convey to normal people how it feels to be responsible for so many moving parts and critical deadlines. To take responsibility for the insanely valuable property entrusted to you by leaders of industry; or the life’s work of a struggling inventor, hoping to repay her family’s faith and support.
The field of IP Formalities is special, and we obsess, day and night, to build services befitting the tireless, amazing unsung heroes who work within it, who get it, and who speak its special language.
