Career Opportunity – Patent Attorney

Current as of 17 September 2018


Our team has grown significantly over the past year so that we have a position available for a talented patent attorney.


The Opportunity


As a critically important member of our team of attorneys, you’ll enjoy meeting with local clients and helping them to fully capture the value of their intellectual property. Day-to-day you’ll draft patent specifications, prepare examination responses for the major jurisdictions and provide advice regarding filing strategies, infringement and validity of patents. You’ll be encouraged to exchange ideas and to try new approaches to practice building.


What’s in it for You?


1. Happiness Matters – Be part of a friendly and collegiate team in a firm known for great culture and flexibility. You’ll enjoy working with smart people in a relaxed, open-office environment where your ideas are welcomed, taken seriously and acted upon to improve the firm.

2. Win-Win Philosophy – Our philosophy is that all team members must share in and contribute to the success of our firm.  We provide an environment where you are able to shine, rather than being just another battery hen in the billing cycle. 

3. Path to Equity – We’re independent and privately owned. The normal pathways to equity partnership remain in place here.
