The LEDES Oversight Committee Board of Directors has authorized the creation of a subcommittee to consider updates to the IP Invention Disclosure Schema. Robin Hunziker, who spearheaded creation of the original standard, is leading this effort.
A draft version of the proposed revisions can be found here, as well as a link to a survey to collect public comment on the changes.
A new book on using the Mergers and Acquisitions Codes is now available. Authored by Aileen Leventon and Jenny Ann Horst-Martz, who led the effort to create the M&A codes, this modestly priced resource illustrates how the codes can be used to help price or evaluate fees and value of a matter, identify where you are in the matter/plan budget, identify out-of scope work that may need to be addressed and enable corrective action as needed to meet deadlines and budgets. More information on the book can be found here.
