Current Positions Available
Employment: Full-time or Part-time
Location: Indianapolis, IN
We’re seeking an experienced and motivated patent attorney to handle overflow patent preparation and prosecution work and to take active steps to grow the firm’s intellectual property practice. The position could be part-time or full-time, depending on how the needs of the candidate align with the needs of the firm. Telecommuting is an option, but a physical presence in Indianapolis is preferred. This is a great opportunity for an experienced attorney interested in growing his or her practice, or a motivated attorney with some prior experience in patent law seeking to develop his or her legal skill sets.
Our firm has three intellectual property attorneys who handle a broad range of matters, including patent and trademark prosecution, licensing, and litigation. Our immediate need is for a suitable candidate to handle overflow patent preparation and prosecution work with minimal oversight based on instructions provided for each task. No particular scientific or practice area background is required, but education/experience in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, or chemistry is preferred.
The ideal candidate will be comfortable working directly with clients and have a proven record of generating business. A traditional “book of business” is not required, but the preferred candidate has some of his or her own active client work and possesses other strong client relationships. A minimum of 2-3 years of prosecution experience is required, as are strong writing skills.
We are a casual attire and casual atmosphere office, which is uncommon for a firm with such a diverse client base and our overall quantity of legal work. Each of us previously worked at a large law firm, and we enjoy the small firm lifestyle. We work closely with one another, so a good attitude, a willingness to learn, and a desire to be an active part of a strong team are musts.
