Offit Kurman is seeking an Intellectual Property (IP) associate to join its growing IP practice in Philadelphia, PA, Plymouth Meeting, PA, or New York, NY. This role will involve all phases of a sophisticated IP practice but will focus largely on patents: patent drafting & prosecution, global patent portfolio management, freedom-to-operate analysis (non-infringement/invalidity analysis), patent enforcement counseling, and portfolio analysis for a wide range of innovators.
We are looking for attorneys with 2-8 years of experience in patent law, with substantial experience in patent preparation, patent prosecution, and patent counseling.
Experience with patent litigation, trademark law, copyright, and trade secret is an advantage but is not required. Our most pressing needs are mechanical and materials technologies; medical device experience and exposure to electronics is a plus.
Registration to practice before U.S. Patent & Trademark Office is required.
