Intellectual Property Associate
We’re seeking an IP Associate Attorney to join a prominent national law firm’s Milwaukee office. This is an excellent opportunity to build upon an existing practice which the firm is looking to expand. This is mainly a patent prosecution position; however, there may be an opportunity to handle IP Litigation cases as they arise. The successful candidate will work closely with the corporate team on all aspects of domestic and international prosecution and counseling. The candidate will handle both patent and trademark prosecution, licensing, diligence for mergers and acquisitions, and litigation support. The candidate will also advise clients about contracts, and work on patent post-grant proceedings while following the ethical requirements as set forth by the Firm’s professional liability insurer. The candidate must have strong communication and writing skills, be self-motivated with the drive to help shape and expand a growing practice and have the ability and confidence to work independently.
Candidate must have a Juris Doctorate degree (JD) from an accredited U.S. law school, a USPTO registration, and be a member, or eligible to become a member of the Wisconsin State Bar upon joining the firm. An engineering, computer science, or related background is required. Advanced degree preferred.
Our client will relocate a qualified individual. Excellent compensation structure, bonus potential, and collaborative culture. This is truly a firm and opportunity that has the potential to be an excellent long-term fit. There is relatively low turn-over and we’ve placed plenty of happy attorneys at this firm.
