Description: Patent Prosecution/Biochem/PhD - virtual

Position: Associate

Notes: Long time IP boutique client in Phila has asked us to help them bring on a Biochem PhD. /JD with a minimum of 1 year experience doing patent preparation and prosecution - both domestic and foreign. This position does not require a book of business (although welcome) as there is more than enough work ready to be addressed. Work will be primarily biotech and chemical. Working virtually is a definite possibility now and long term. We placed an attorney there 5 years ago who is quite happy and has flourished in his role to date.

The firm has a productivity-based comp plan that offers larger rewards than big law for those inclined. There is also an origination fee for those who bring clients in over time. No billing requirements and expectations are not excessive. The position will be in office although an eventual virtual day per week is possible.

Firm has a robust benefits program that includes health, disability and life as well as a 401K contribution after a year's time.

Years Experience: (1 - 6)

Specialty: Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Chemistry

Bar Requirements: USPTO

Back to Search

I had initially reached out to Mitch before the COVID-19 pandemic, which had put my job search on hold. I was immediately impressed with how plugged in he seemed to be in the industry. After the first wave began subsiding in the early summer, I decided to take a chance and restart my job search. Mitch was one of my first contacts. Mitch was very open and transparent throughout the process and he took the time to mentor me during all facets of the recruitment lifecycle. For example, he would insist on having conversations before every interview to guide my preparation. Mitch helped me make a move from a small firm to an Am Law 100-200 firm, and he was there every step of the way from application through offer letter. Even though he had already placed me, Mitch was thoughtful enough to check in and ask how I was adjusting. I certainly recommend Mitch to other attorneys in the job market.
