Associates with 2-3 years of patent experience, strong verbal, written and interpersonal skills, superior academic credentials, and a degree qualifying for USPTO registration, with preference for a degree in electrical engineering, physics, computer science or a related field. The role will focus on USPTO litigation proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), so candidates with either patent litigation or prosecution experience will be considered, and a mix of both would be a plus. The firm is open to having the successful candidate in our Seattle, Palo Alto, or Washington, D.C. office.
