Are you coming with us to enjoy the ride?

"Yes, I work days from 9 to 9, but…

Yes, there is pressure , but…

Yes, there are nitty-gritty assignments, but….


when I am in a court room in the USA, fighting for my client,

when my team and I are in London negotiating that all important ,

when my team is at the client organizing the Due Diligence,

when I finally understand the essential trick of the invention

when I find that statement I need in that ridiculously large file,

when the strategy works…

…I reap the rewards of those 9 to 9, pressurized doing the "homework" days.

And, when the dust has settled, the deal is done, the battle is over, I work a couple of days from 10 to 4. I wind down doing some business development (lunch with the client?), I share my stories and knowledge with my co-workers and recharge for the next rollercoaster thrill." (Johan Renes - IP Partner)
