NEED FOR IP ATTORNEYS IS ON THE RISE

McDermott Will & Emery has been hiring intellectual property attorneys like it’s going out of style, and they aren’t alone!  The firm is rapidly expanding its patent prosecution practice, and law firms all around California seem to be following suit.  In the last few weeks Jones Day has announced new hires, as has VLP law Group.  Delia Swan, owner of Swan Legal Search, assures us that more of this trend is on the way.

“It’s true that we’re seeing an increase in intellectual property positions throughout the state,” Swan said.  “This is an area of law that we don’t see slowing down anytime soon.”  In particular, Swan said, she is seeing a lot of positions for lawyers who have experience with the technology sector in the Silicon Valley area.

“From what we at Swan Legal Search have seen, IP attorneys are more in demand now than they have been at any time in the last few years.  This is great news for patent attorneys and other IP lawyers who have an EE, CS or physics background.”  Just a quick review of the search engines for IP jobs produces a slew of recent hires and need-to-hires.

“This is a very exciting time for attorneys.  We are starting to see a real increase in jobs across the state,” Swan said.  “It appears that California lawyers have something to celebrate – finally!”

So, what does this mean for you?  If you have patent and IP experience, now is the time to start thinking about making a move.  There are definitely jobs to be had, and firms are ready to hire.  Be sure to get your resume in order, brush up on your interviewing skills and don’t forget to contact us.  We’re in the know about IP jobs throughout the state, and we’re here to help you get the job you’ve always wanted!
