Are you a Life Sciences patent agent looking for a growing law firm in the entrepreneurial space?
Professionals at Gearhart Law can expect to have a “hands on” approach that entails experience, responsibilities, and opportunities that firms typically restrict to partners. As such, the candidate must excel in a team environment and be a highly motivated self-starter with excellent business judgment, outstanding written communication skills, and the flexibility to thrive in a fast-paced professional environment. Responsibilities include patent preparation and prosecution, and counseling clients on designing around competitor’s patents. Our partners have a wide range of knowledge and experience in patent, trademark and copyright law, and we’re looking for the right patent attorney to join our team.
Gearhart Law offers a competitive salary; our compensation is competitive with peer firms and commensurate with our billable hour expectations. The firm also offers a benefits package that includes medical coverage, 401K with matching, life insurance, disability insurance and more.
Our ideal candidate will be a patent agent with experience drafting life sciences patent applications. This position requires a Ph.D. in Chemistry, Biology, Biochemistry, or a related field and 5-10 years’ experience searching, drafting, and prosecuting small molecule and biotech patents. Experience in international prosecution and managing international portfolios is a plus. Drafting and prosecuting medical devices and other mechanical technologies a plus.
Must be registered to practice before the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO).
Remote work opportunities available.
