Let’s Close the Deal to Support Your Professional Success


Because LES connects you with a diverse global community of IP professionals, offers you dynamic educational programming, and provides you with many ways to participate in an organization that’s on the cutting edge of all things IP. LES membership will make you a more valuable contributor and resource for your company or organization.

Here are some resources and talking points that you can use to convince your boss on why attending the Annual Meeting is a win-win situation and the benefits of LES membership.


IP Owner Group Membership

Why the LES Group Membership is the Best Bang for your Organizations Buck!

Gather your co-workers and influence leadership on the benefits and savings on the IP Group Owner Membership with LES. You get up to 15 employees to join as LES Members for $1995 and that delivers almost $4000 in Savings!

Who doesn’t love a good deal? This group membership is more than just savings, there are organizational benefits such as:

Happier Employees: Happier employees are loyal and less likely to jump ship (for warmer waters). They are infectious and their enthusiasm contributes to the culture of the organization and leads to happier employees. Increasing smiles and building a workplace that everyone enjoys. LES members love their jobs and love their organizations (they told us!).

Higher Performing Employees: It is a fact! When you and a group of your colleagues take the time and initiative to improve professional experience and knowledge, you showcase your commitment to success and become top performers (and future industry experts). LES members are some of the most successful and sought after thought leaders in the industry!

Increased Skills + Professional Development: Membership offers resources in education, training, networking, and mentoring that increases expertise and knowledge. The more you know, the more you grow (promotion alert!!). Did you see the education and professional training opportunities offered by LES? (CLP + CLE for starters).

Retention: When you keep your staff and reduce turnover, you save money, time, and efficiency. Having to hire new employees is more than just a headache. You can invest in your current staff or spend the time and money hiring inexperienced staff (who may also head for warmer waters!). LES members have been at the same organization for an average of 7.5 years.

Membership Benefits: The more the merrier! Connect with your fellow LES members and attend events, conferences, and get free access to webinars and to Deal Term and Royalty Rate Surveys! Plus, expand your connection with the largest global IP and licensing professional database. Network, network, network!

We may not need to convince you and your co-workers of the value of IP Owner Group membership – but let us help you convince your leadership!
