On this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy speaks with WRP Legal & Advisory senior associate Stephen Annicchiarico, who recently won the IP category at the 30 Under 30 Awards, on what motivates him about working as an intellectual property lawyer, how and why he realised that there was an opportunity for him to build his firm’s practice in that space, and how to go about convincing firm leaders to let an emerging lawyer take on such a responsibility.

Mr Annicchiarico details the practical and educational steps he took to ensure he could successfully build his practice, how being a young lawyer helps in such a process, being nimble and agile, building the practice in Adelaide versus a bigger Australian city, what he has learnt from the journey, the challenges he has faced, and why he sees his trajectory as such a meaningful and rewarding pathway for emerging leaders in law.
