"We have served as a WIPLA sponsor for two years because it is one of the most dymanic and focused IP networking groups in the Bay Area. The members are passionate about what they do and motived by each other. Their enthusiasm makes this the perfect group for building professional and personal relationships. The events we have hosted with WIPLA have included an evening MCLE that combined a panel discussion on patent damages with a cooking demonstration. It served as a forum for high-level legal discussion and offered a festive and relaxed atmosphere conducive to networking. The attendance was great and so was the return on investment." -- Suzanne M. Stuckwisch, Partner, Winnemac Consulting LLP
"K&L Gates is a founding sponsor of WIPLA. The firm supports diversity in the legal profession and is always seeking ways to encourage women attorneys in their careers. Accordingly, WIPLA has proven to be an ideal partner. Because of WIPLA's focus on the professional needs of women in IP practice, it has rapidly developed a strong network of committed, smart women who are enthusiastic about WIPLA, law practice, and each other. One of the ways we have capitalized on our involvement with WIPLA is by sponsoring several MCLE events, all of which have been fertile ground for the exchange of ideas, dynamic debates, and great networking." -- Partner, Kathryn M. Wheble, Partner, Hiaring + Smith LLP.
