Richards Patent Law is a full-service, Chicago-based, intellectual property law firm that works with clients around the world. We are currently looking to hire patent attorneys to help us grow our patent prosecution practice.
The ideal addition to our team is a patent prosecution attorney with 5+ years experience in writing and prosecuting U.S. patent applications and counseling clients with respect to all of the questions they will have around the process (e.g., is this patentable? should we patent this? how do we know we don’t infringe someone else’s patent?). We work across a wide range of technologies and fields, so we are less concerned about hiring someone with a specific technical background and we are more concerned about hiring someone that is interested and capable of working across a wide range of subject matter.
The RPL work environment is unique. We generally do not bill by the hour, nor do we track attorney productivity by the hour. We work collaboratively in a project-based environment where client results matter. You will not be responsible for generating clients, you will be responsible for taking control of client matters and guiding the client and matter to meet the clients’ goals.
RPL attorneys are problem solvers with excellent judgment skills. We constantly multi-task in a fast-paced environment. We value communication skills. A successful RPL patent attorney is not shy to get things done and doesn’t wait to be told what to do next. We care about providing the best possible service to our clients and we will support you with the resources (e.g., training, mentoring, administrative assistance, etc.) to do your best work.
